Collaboration among those who care about each child contributes inevitably to better learning outcomes.
By sharing observations with parents linked to curriculum and/or plans, you communicate your approach – in real time. Send announcements from our message dashboard.
Educa’s story format helps parents see your approach and values. Being able to share a child’s progress with validating links animates teachers, and creates special teacher-family connections.
Teacher portfolios for reflections or inquiry. Maintain appraisals and individual plans also. Use story comments to mentor younger teachers in real-time. More here
Educa was developed for New Zealand educators who are innovative and independent, each service needing a different set up. Our platform is highly adaptable.
Reports on learning for each child, on parent engagement, on teacher activity and more help you understand your service and save time in compliance.
Our digital portfolios save paper, although stories can be printed. Having it all online in one place – for sharing and collaboration – helps efficiency.
Any Device, Anytime, Anywhere

“Educa gives us a place to build and grow the picture of a child. This story can be shared with parents and future teachers, which they can contribute to and work in partnership with the centre to build these skills at home. A true partnership, where else can you get this?!”
“It also allows us to set organisational goals for teachers and centres so that they can go on an educational journey, and be reflective and evaluative of what they do. It is a tool that can create time, and a tool that allows us to lift the quality of what we are doing irrespective of the regulations we have to follow.”
