Make Learning Visible

Educational outcomes are enhanced when teachers truly understand their children, and when teachers and families work together.

Our learning story software helps teachers focus on each child’s unique story and journey.

And it gives them a way to capture success in an open-ended narrative, not restricted by check boxes.

It’s a process that builds understanding and a format that engages families. 

Educa is a complete educational solution. We support learning stories, planning, supporting documentation, assessments and teacher professional development.

jackie lints educare“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.”
