Pros: An accessible menu, easy to follow time line. I appreciate how simple it is to find the information and updates I am after.

Cons: The design/aesthetics, more specifically how photos appear. Feels a little cheesy and dated. Some of this may be to do with how it is used by the preschool staff?

It has been great. There were times that the system is down but I received notification so it's ok.

Pros: It's great for parents/whanau who will be able to see their children's learning and preschool will be able to send information faster.

Cons: Some families do not have computer or smartphones that allows them to view learning stories. Some have limited access on the internet so it can affect some families.

Overall: Learn how to use.

amazing tool for parents, educators and families.

Comments: There are no cons really on my experience as an Educator, Centre Manager and a Parent it has only been positive, it is a much easier, less time consuming tool to document children's learning, all families loved it, especially grandparents that live overseas or in different states, they loved having the opportunity to be close to they grandchildren and be part of their day to day life. And as a parent I loved that I'll have my children stories and memories of their early years of learning for the rest of their life and that one day they may show it to their own children.

Professional, interactive & inspiring

Comments: We have been using Educa for a few months now and are thrilled with it! Our educators are inspired everyday to share moments & stories with families so easily. Our families are absolutely loving the program and seeing what their children are doing each day, sometimes live! The connection between educator, child & family ( even extended family ) is brilliant - our family involvement has gone through the roof! Most importantly educators have more time with the children as they are not spending hours & hours writing observations and learning stories. We cannot recommend Educa enough - best decision we ever made.

Educa a great product for all ChildCare Centre's and The Great thing is Parents just love it !!
