Fully-Featured Platform

Educa is child portfolio software and a full data cycle solution –  Learning Stories, assessment, plans, forms, family communications & more.

Our Learning Story templates help teachers share learning and teaching, with heart.

Formal and informal assessment

Write Learning Stories to reflect on each child - formative assessment. Then link to frameworks. Educa is an approved DRDP vendor.

Time management tool

Because each story is about the whole child, it can generally serve as evidence for 8-10 measures in the DRDP and similar frameworks. This saves time. Educa has many other time savers also.

“Educa gives us a place to build and grow the picture of a child. This story can be shared with parents and future teachers, who can 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 be reflective and evaluative of what they do. It allows us to lift the quality of what we do.”

Jackie Lints
Co-Founder, Educare Group

(On Learning Stories) “In the past, families took the pictures out of their portfolios and threw the rest away. Now, they respond to their child’s story.

They get to see just how much I see their child, and sometimes they are shown things about their child that they didn’t know. I think it is incredibly powerful for them to see that the staff enjoys their child, and that they are more than welcome in our programs.”
