Educa now exporting to Australia

Wellington, February 19, 2013 - Educa is now officially delivering its cloud-based e-portfolio solution to its neighbor country Australia. Two new customers in Sydney and Perth with a total of 650 pupils and parents are now enjoying the benefits of sharing children’s learning programmes and communicating across kindergarten, primary and intermediate students.

The chain Sandcastles Childcare in Sydney is Educa´s first ECE Centre in Australia. It is now linking learning programmes to parents at home with the help of Educa’s e-portfolio solution. Sandcastles Childcare have 400 kids enrolled and sharing with parents is now made easier for everyone.

The second breakthrough was made by partnering up with Perth's Bold Park Community School, which is now using Educa platform to communicate the school day happenings to its 250 sets of parents.

Educa has identified a potential for their e-portfolio solution in Australasia where most early learning centres record children's learning records manually and offline. With more than one million children going through Early Childhood Education centres each year the process of writing and organizing learning records is time consuming, but can be eased by the help of Educa.

Currently, Educa operates with more than 130 early childhood centres in New Zealand. It is possible to expand to the school market, but for now Educa will keep its focus on the preschool centres to ensure current- and potential customers the highest possible level of innovation and performance.

Educa is a custom-made solution designed to meet the needs of early childhood education, teachers and parents. Instead of traditional software packages Educa offers a web-based portfolio of a child's growth and development at an early childhood centre. It allows parents and early childhood teachers to share a child's journey and gain valuable feedback.

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs.

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides.
