The Educa Value Proposition
Printer cartridge cost savings alone pay for Educa in most cases
- Putting it early childhood portfolios online, accessible for parents and teachers, saves the need for paper. And paper is expensive. Not only printing, photocopy and mailing costs, but also the time it takes with filing, retrieving from files, etc.
Save on Printing
Printing costs average about 10 cents per page. When you add up forms, announcements, internal documentation, reports for parents and the rest of it, most services will spend $2+ per child a month in printing and photocopying costs. Educa does not eliminate the need for paper, but it reduces it substantially.
Free Up Staff Time
Your staff will save time because everything is at their fingertips. While most of our customers are attracted by Educa’s parent engagement value and its ability to link activities to state and proprietary curriculum, 81% of customers say that Educa saves time.
Less Paper Saves Money & Time
Less paper, less need for filing space. Plus, being online, it’s easier to locate and to share. There’s also portability. For instance, for parent meetings, with the e-portfolio is at your finger tips, there’s no need to print it all out. Educa also has a parent portal where parents can access and print out forms, policies and announcements.
Educa is a selling point that will help you attract new families. And if you are so inclined, Educa may provide an opportunity for you to raise fees, based on your higher service levels.
Happy Parents Refer
Parents love Educa. They love seeing photos and updates on their phones, and they appreciate the insights into their child’s learning. Happy parents tell other parents. One extra referral covers the modest cost of Educa for years.
Less Teacher Turnover
Teachers need a bit of love. When parents are not engaged, appreciation for the work they do is sparse. Educa creates a tighter parent connection, that inevitably leads to more positive feedback and happier, more fulfilled teachers.
