Educa to provide revolutionary technology for home based childcare providers

Wellington, December 5th, 2012 – Educa, an online E-Portfolio system specifically designed for New Zealand Early Childhood Education Providers, teachers, parents and children today settled on a preferred supplier agreement with the NZ Home Base Childcare Association.

The relationship between the Wellington based online software provider and the Association will mean that members of the New Zealand Home Based Childcare Association are offered the benefit of using ICT to assist in providing quality home based early childhood education to New Zealand children.

Nathan Li, CEO of Educa met the president of the NZ Home Base Childcare Association, Carol Strovold at a conference early this year – and knew that the E-Portfolio product and service that Educa offers would be of huge value to home based childcare providers. Using Educa software, teachers are able to record, update and share learning stories in a secured online environment – meaning that communication between teachers and parents is significantly improved.

‘Home based child care grows 700% over the past 15 years’ said Nathan Li, on the increase of parents choosing to send their children to home based centers. ‘Educa brings value to the table to in the home based early childhood education setting’

Members of the Home Base Childcare Association will be able to take advantage of this deal with Educa after the 5th of December, when the agreement is settled.
