For Private Preschools and Child Care

Transform your program with Learning Stories.

Learning Stories are heart-led

Because Learning Stories are personal, written to the child, they are engaging to families. Each story is a celebration of learning, and a valued keepsake. More on Learning Stories here.

Showcase your approach

Families want to know their child is receiving a great education. Group or individual stories communicate your educational value and approach.

Teachers feel confident and supported

Teachers work in teams, senior teachers mentor and review in real time. Set up discussion groups, teacher portfolios and/or professional plans, post training resources for guidance.

Assessment that supports teaching

Learning Stories are a form of authentic assessment. A focus on what makes each child unique inevitably leads to better decision-making. Educa is an approved DRDP assessment vendor if you need data reporting.

Everything in one place

Educa is a fully-featured educational solution, organized around each child. It has portfolios, plans, forms, notes, DRDP assessment ratings, family and teacher noticeboards, and a documental portal.

A private community

Access Educa online or via our family or teacher apps. Each site has a unique URL, a private online community for your staff, families and extended families. Create groups, share news and resources anytime, anywhere.

Save on printing costs

While most things in Educa can be printed, most of the time it’s not needed. Educa pays for itself many times over in print cost savings alone.

Professional development

Staff use our teacher portfolios to track professional development requirements – they can write reflections and inquiry, and add evidence from Educa as they go. Plus it’s easier to manage when all teachers are using the same system.

Here's What Our Clients Are Saying

"Educa has made our preschool more connected, more efficient and more in tune with parents. Everyone loves it."

Jane Peterson
Teacher, Early Learners

"We looked at other providers but chose Educa ...The key was the software had the flexibility to fit with what we wanted and needed rather than us needing to fit with what the software could do."

Raewyn Penman
Education Services Manager, Kidsfirst

"Educa gives educators more time to focus on quality interactions with the children rather than paperwork. It cuts administration time in half."
