Testimonials

At EarlyWorks we strive for excellence in product development and customer support. Our biggest reward is to have satisfied clients share their experience with us. Below are a few notable testimonials that we would like to share with you.

  • At My Planet Childcare, we have only been using EarlyWorks for about 2 months. We are working towards maximising its full potential, where the flexibility of the software allows us to express our own individual styles of teaching and practices whilst also encouraging us to reflect of our pedagogical practices without conforming to a particular format. It is a platform where we can provide a more holistic approach in all aspects of Education and Care under the umbrella of inclusion for all children.
    Now with the added use of an App, our families feel a lot more comfortable with the use of technology checking up on their child’s Daily Communication (routine information), programs and observations, pictures, etc. We have also started to see an increase in parent participation and communication via EarlyWorks.
    The EarlyWorks Team are amazing. They are always happy to receive feedback on the use of the software, as well as provide some insight on how to approach parts of the software keeping in mind the EYLF and NQS.
    Overall, EarlyWorks gives you more time with the children, helps you present and come up with programs in a more meaningful ways, aids your educators and educational leader to consolidate and streamline practices and fosters better communication and involvement with families.

  • I just want to share with you our delight with utilising EarlyWorks as an online platform for educators and families.
    We have had nothing but positive feedback towards this app, and it continues to improve with maintaining updated with any changes happening with the Early Childhood Sector.
    Families love that they can check up on their child’s day at any time and not having to wait until pick up time to find out. Families love that it is simple and easy to use and can easily be downloaded on any tablet, phone or computer.
    This app is amazing for educators to complete all tasks relevant in achieving high quality care and education to the children at families. We love that we can organise/ schedule a demo and online training sessions with you at any time and you have been more than flexible and accommodating to our centre’s needs.
    I continually and will remain praising EarlyWorks and we are always recommending your online system to anyone and everyone who wish to update, change or start up with a new online platform.
    Thank you so much EarlyWorks and the employees behind it all, you are doing an amazing job, Keep up the amazing work!

  • I want to say thank you for the ongoing support. Today Ashton was saying how much she loved talking to you. You have made all the staff feel valued and secure.
    It’s always such a scary journey when we make big changes but this process has been a really enjoyable.

    Tamsin Rounsevell Coordinator/ Nominated Supervisor - Turtle Cove Early Learning Centre Strathalbyn
  • Since introducing EarlyWorks into our centre in May 2016, we have been very impressed with the improvements in almost every aspect of our service. All of our educators have found it very easy to use, and has saved countless hours of manual paperwork. The response from all of our parents & families has been very positive, and communications between the educators and parents has improved dramatically.
    So far EarlyWorks has exceeded all of our expectations, and we would highly recommend using this program to any early childhood education service.

  • We 100% recommend EarlyWorks to all centres. We have found our programming time has halved and much more simple to get our parents involved and send feedback. The system is very user friendly. I couldn’t be happier with our decision to implement EarlyWorks in our child care.

    Leah Tagliaferri Owner/Director - Glen Iris Child Care Centre
  • Play & Learn introduced EarlyWorks at our O’Connor centre as a trial  3 months ago. We had already trialled another product earlier in  the year, but found it to be complicated and cumbersome to use. The Educators did not enjoy using it. We spent a considerable amount of time looking for a product that would be simple to use as well as meeting  the requirements of our programming system, not to mention the ability to monitor and audit learning programs created and implemented. EarlyWorks has proven to be a very simple,  user friendly and professional product that has taken very little effort to roll out. There has been ample support and training, and based on the success of this trial, we will be rolling this system into all the Play & Learn centres in January.
    We are looking forward to the implementation of EarlyWorks throughout the group as not only a time saving and more efficient way to effectively program for children, but with the ability to share the children’s information with families so easily, we look forward to adding value to our clients experience with Play & Learn.

  • Through using EarlyWorks I would have to say that the girls are saying they don’t really need their programming time (2 hours) now for writing their programs.
    They obviously are still given this time but because they can use the EarlyWorks program quickly and easily throughout the day and whilst it is rest/sleep time, they find that during their programming time they are able to do things such as finalising routines and refining practices in their rooms, create artwork, projects, cleaning/sorting, QIP evaluations etc.
    Previously through the use of another product it wasn’t clear to parents or educators what was happening and there wasn’t a clear program in place. It was very time consuming as it wasn’t easy to use and the girls struggled to complete a program in their 2 hours non-contact time, some weeks it wasn’t getting done at all. A lot of paper was being used to set up portfolios, now there is no time taken to make a quick basic portfolio as everything is already on EarlyWorks.
    In summary I think it has saved each staff member (2 hours a week) if not more. That’s all educators not just qualified staff.

    Tania Hyde Owner/Director - Teddy Bear Corner Child Care Centre
  • I have been a Family Day Care educator for seventeen years. EarlyWorks is the best programming system that I have used during this time. It is very user friendly, covers all areas of the National Quality Framework and their customer support is second to none. My families now easily and enthusiastically contribute to the program and their feedback has been one hundred percent positive. If looking for the most comprehensive and time efficient method of programming, EarlyWorks is the way to go.

    Chantelle Brown Owner - Bees Knees Family Day Care
  • I started using EarlyWorks two years ago. I have found it to be the most comprehensive documentation program available. Most days I spend 15 minutes to program, journal and add photos. The parents of the children in care love to log in to see whats been happening in their child’s day and find it easy to navigate.
    I highly recommend EarlyWorks as I can complete documenting in a shorter time frame. This allows me to spend more time to be actively involved with the children I have in care. I feel very comfortable I am now meeting National Quality Standards with documentation.

    Lisa Green Family Day Care Educator
  • Earlyworks was in place at the day care centre that I enrolled my daughter in. It was actually a big reason why I chose the centre. It enabled me to not only see what fun things she had been up to during the day but also allowed me to keep track of how much she had eaten, slept and how many nappies etc she had. Being an anxious parent I felt a massive relief knowing I could log in during the day while in work and gain HUGE piece of mind that she was ok. It helped me feel less excluded from my daughters special moments being able to see pictures and reading the lovely written narratives from her educators. I would love to see this programme implemented in all childcare centres.
