Easier Than You Think

Educa was developed with the guidance of leading early educators and academics. In addition to encouraging linking, privacy settings and other requirements, they advised us to make Educa:

  • Easy to use
  • Flexible

We listened! While the software manages complexity behind the scenes, it looks like what you do on paper. It’s not like accounting software.

If you do need help, our support team will help you every step of the way, along with our Help Resources website.
