What is EarlyWorks?
EarlyWorks is a comprehensive early childhood programming, documentation, portfolio and CCMS integration system.
EarlyWorks provides a clean and intuitive interface which simplifies and streamlines ALL aspects of childcare management across an entire service (or group of services), including program planning, individual and group observations, educational evaluations, effortless creation of child portfolios and a detailed collaborative Quality Improvement Plan. EarlyWorks’ also offer quality CCMS integration and account management features.
EarlyWorks’ streamlined approach guides Educators to complete observations that include their analysis of learning, progress towards learning outcomes (EYLF, MTOP, QKLG, etc.), plan for future learning as well as clearly showing whether an observation has been a spontaneous or planned learning experience. Learning is captured for each individual child in both group and individual observations.
Managers and educators are provided with a collaboration area for each program, where ideas, feedback and discussions can take place and even provide the catalyst for one of the next programmed experiences, with a visible link of evidence. Individual educators critically reflect on their pedagogy through reflecting on the principles and practices of the EYLF (or alternative framework) and the standards of the NQS, effortlessly contributing to the services QIP.
Administrators can view charts and reports containing real-time statistics on service documentation. The administrator access makes it simple to:
- Reflect on each educators’ contributions to the services education and care programs, assisting in the overall performance appraisals.
- Monitor that each child’s current progress, learning and development is being recorded and evaluated on a regular and ongoing basis.
- Reflect on and review documentation across the service/s. Truly engaging in the critical reflection and evaluation of a truly collaborative curriculum.
Families have real-time access to their child’s information securely over the internet. Allowing families to view, comment and engage at a time that suits their needs.
Optional CCMS integration not only meets Department of Education and Training’s interface requirements, but also allows you to collect fees, claim rebates, email invoices and manage all aspects of your customer accounts. Features include an integrated payment gateway and accounting system integration.
