Create a Circle Of Learning

Everyone who cares about a child is on the same page, a community around each child. Here’s how it works.
– Child plays and learns
– Teacher observes, records and shares with parents
– Parents respond and/or add their own stories
– Teacher uses feedback to plan and document
Teachers post observations by group or individual child.
The circle can include extended family, specialists and others.

Use Any Device

Educa is a mobile responsive web-based software that works on computers, tablets and phones. We also have the Educa Touch app for Apple iOS and Android.
Start an observation now, finish it later on another device. Create observations for one child or a group.
Use voice dictation on most phones to record on the go.

All of the parents have accepted invitations to join our Educa site. The feedback we have had from them is quite outstanding. They find it a wonderful way to share with friends and family their child’s life at preschool. It also provides them with an insight into what their child has been doing on a regular basis, without the need to pass a portfolio backwards and forwards between the home and school.
