Educa overview

What is Educa?

Educa is an early learning and education software that offers child care professionals a single, centralized platform from which to communicate, collaborate and engage with families. Incorporating document sharing, progress planning and customizable progress reporting, Educa aims to deliver a simple early education solution.

Designed to facilitate parent engagement, Educa enables users to send classroom photos, videos and observations directly to parents. Since Educa is available as a native mobile application on iOS and Android, parents can receive updates and post feedback on the move from any smartphone or tablet device. Educa supports secure document storage and sharing, allowing users to create and send comprehensive child portfolios to parents and other schools.

As users are able to upload state guidelines as well as custom methods such as Montessori, Educa grants child care professionals the flexibility to connect and align updates to any curriculum, equipping users with the tools to plan, track and assess child progress against predefined curriculum goals.

While child progress can be tracked with customizable progress reports, Educa also permits users to monitor parent activity using activity reports. To promote teacher development, Educa enables teachers to record their professional development goals, reflections and progress, and with a review and approval system, Educa helps users manage content quality; a useful support feature for inexperienced teachers.

Whenever I have a problem, which isn't very often, the staff are always very helpful and prompt in helping me out and they can always sort out my problem.

Pros
I really like the ease of Educa and how I can use it at work, at home or on my phone. It is a great resource for us to keep in touch with whanau - routines, messages, daily diary and learning stories. Parents are more likely to comment on learning stories as well as giving us stories from home.

Cons
Would like a few more borders, but it isn't a major issue for us.

Best Documentation Program I have Used

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

Incessant and time consuming paperwork and record keeping are dramatically and easily reduced. Staff are extremely helpful and pleasant.

Pros
Ease of use for documentation and sharing with parents and other educators. Integration with existing business methods was a non event because this easily replaced the numerous other things I was using.

Cons
Some of the things that this program does are not simple for me to understand. More because I am not computer literate enough rather than the program being at fault.

A good way to keep track of your kids documentation!

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Incredible documentation software that helps parents and teachers keep track of their kids any time, everywhere you go, saving parents and teachers a lot of time and facilitating the communication between them, HIGHLY recommended.

Pros
How easy it is for you to check what your kids have been doing lately in their respective classes, ask the teacher and clear your doubts right away and even see photos of excursions or just class activities, all in the same place, which also is very organized and intuitive.

Cons
I really don't think this software has badly implemented features, but sometimes it gets a little bit slow, but really it is not a problem that concerns me or affects the experience with Educa.
