Childcare centres and services that truly value education, use EarlyWorks.

EarlyWorks is a comprehensive early childhood programming, documentation, portfolio and family communication system.  EarlyWorks simplifies and streamlines all aspects of childcare documentation and programming across an entire service.

Congratulations to South West Rocks Preschool, Little Steps Early Learning East Lindfield, I STEAM Ahead, The Family Tree Early Learning Centre and Charles Sturt University Children’s Centre on recently achieving an Exceeding ACECQA NQS rating in QA1.

Complete Planning Cycle

EarlyWorks allows educators to make visible the quality of the program being delivered each day in every room of the service. Observations, analysis of learning, planning, implementation, and evaluation of experiences, can all be documented and easily linked as part of an ongoing cycle.

I want to see an ongoing cycle of learning for every child.

Family Communication

EarlyWorks makes it easy to keep families informed about the program and their child’s progress in real time.  Information about meals, bottle times, toileting, sleep, sunscreen and much more.  All accessible online or via the EarlyWorks App.

Family engagement is key to our success.

Ongoing Assessment

Every child’s learning and development can be easily monitored and assessed at any time. Individual planning cycles, learning journeys and learning profiles are updated by EarlyWorks every time documentation is added.

How do I create documentation that matches the quality of our program?

Online Forms, Events, Tasks and Checklists

EarlyWorks makes it easy for families and educators to communicate important information from any internet connected device at any time. Incident, Medication and Excursion forms can be completed and signed online. Tasks and checklists can be set, viewed and updated, and events can be added to each user’s event calendar.

Our management systems need to be streamlined.

Collaborative QIP

Administrators and Educators can contribute towards the service’s Quality Improvement Plan. Ease of access and simple input design enable the QIP to be a living document that continuously evolves over time.

It’s important that everyone contributes to the continuous improvement of our service.

CCS Integration

We can partner with your CCS software provider (Xplor, SmartCentral, etc) to create a combined childcare management and education solution, providing synchronisation of child, family, staff and attendance information.  In many cases, staff and families can access both EarlyWorks and your CCS system using the one login screen.

I want CCS integration that doesn’t compromise on quality.

“My educators are brilliant, but I’m just not sure our documentation reflects the quality of the education and care they provide.”

We hear this a lot.  Here’s how EarlyWorks can help.

✔ Diagnostics :  How well prepared are you for Ratings and Assessment of Quality Area 1?

✔ Child Alerts : Ensures that each child’s learning and development is documented on a regular and ongoing basis.

✔ Staff Alerts : View each educator’s contribution to your service’s documentation.

✔ Collaborative QIP : Evidence to support the service’s QIP is automatically generated based on the information already entered into EarlyWorks.

✔ Planning Cycle Report : Provide detailed evidence of planning cycles for the children in your care.

Online Incident Reports, Medication Authority and Excursion Permission Forms

The EarlyWorks Incident Report, Medication Authority and Excursion Permission forms have been developed inline with ACECQA guidelines and general standards. EarlyWorks we are committed to supporting families and services in working together to achieve the best health outcomes for children.

Reflective Practice in Childcare

To promote continuous improvement, it is an NQS requirement that childcare services have a system in place to support the recording of regular reflective practice. EarlyWorks supports reflective practices such as Weekly Reflections to assist educators in improving their knowledge, skills and practices. This in turn creates the best outcomes for children, families and the service. EarlyWorks allows educators to reflect on program and practices with links to the Principles and Practices as well as the Quality Areas of the NQS. Managers and co-ordinators provide feedback with the ability to include this in the service’s Quality Improvement Plan (QIP).

EarlyWorks also supports collaborative reflection using program comments. This allows educators and managers to create reflections at any point during the Planning Cycle.

Manage Your EYLF Planning Cycle

EarlyWorks has been designed by industry specialists to support managers and educators in delivering high quality early childhood educational documentation while being simple to produce and easy to use. Observations, Programs, Journals, Reflections, Children’s Learning Portfolios even the service’s Quality Improvement Plan become almost effortless with EarlyWorks.
