Transform Your Program
Assessment for learning documentation that creates
two-way communication with families.
Documentation doesn't get in the way
Use Learning Stories to record and reflect on each child’s unique path. Share with families frequently, save as evidence for assessment as you go. Complete DRDP and other reporting as your last step. More on learning stories as authentic assessment here.
Families know their child is succeeding
Families need to know their child is receiving a great education. Share group or individual stories in a portfolio families can access anytime, share plans, link to your own philosophy and communicate professionally.
Teachers feel confident and supported
Teachers work in teams, senior teachers mentor and review in real time. Set up discussion groups, teacher portfolios, professional plans and/or annual evaluations to support growth, post resources for guidance.
Individualize learning for each child
Use the understanding and shared ideas that come from making learning visible to differentiate your approach for each child. Share reflections and work together on plans. Stories capture the learning in way checklists cannot.
Earn a top quality rating
Your evidence is in Educa, inspections are nothing to fear. Map out and track a quality review process as a team, add senior teachers to classes to create best practice visibility, post policies to guide teachers, make decisions using data.
Keep connected, open or closed
Educa is a private online community, a unique URL, for your service. Your teachers, parents and extended family see Educa differently, but they are connected. Create groups, share news, resources and conversation anytime, anywhere.
Make learning visible
Observe, reflect, share – nurture cooperation, build understanding.
These are the cornerstones of equity in educational outcomes.
Your Process In One Place

Do it online
Educa has robust documentation tools and templates to meet most service needs – checklists, surveys, plans, year-end reports.
Designed to save time
Educa has dozens of features requested by users over severals that save time for educators and directors.
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.
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.
