Partner with families

Keep connected, open or closed. Share learning to build a working partnership with parents. Use their feedback to individualize your teaching.  

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.

Tell Stories to Capture Learning

Educa uses learning story templates to help educators document and share learning growth in a personal and compelling way. Stories go to a portfolio that parents will value.

Support Teachers

Teachers have a private workspace on Educa for documents, reflection or inquiry, professional plans and appraisal goals. There is also a story review mentoring feature. More here

Give Parents Confidence

Share individual and group stories that demonstrate your approach and celebrate each child’s success. And communicate professionally. Everytime you share you are giving families confidence that their child is receiving a great education.

Reduce Compliance Stress

Share with families as you go, save to a child’s portfolio at the same time. This is the evidence you will use for compliance. In the US, use our Ratings feature to meet DRDP requirements as a last step.

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.”
