About us

Our aim is to empower childcare services by giving them everything they need to offer children the best education ever.

Why ChildDiary

High quality childcare provides important cognitive and emotional benefits for all children. The effects are specially relevant in children’s early years and benefits continue to be felt through school years and into adulthood.

As a result we created ChildDiary, to do everything we can to help childcare services focus on children’s education and well-being instead of being overwhelmed by the compliance paperwork required by regulations.

Furthermore, we believe in the importance of partnerships between childcare services and families and its positive impact on children’s learning outcomes. For this reason ChildDiary helps families and childcare services communicate in a way they could never have done before.

Tânia Jordão
Tânia JordãoCustomer Success Specialist
Tânia was born in Vila Franca de Xira in the late 80s and she always lived in that region of Portugal. As a child she was very shy and reserved. As an adult, she found her passion of communicating with people, which made her follow the career path of customer interaction. Her biggest goal is to find ways to make everyone’s lives easier.
Patrícia Nogueira
Patrícia NogueiraSales Manager
Patrícia was born in Lisboa, ever since she was a little girl she said she wanted to be a kindergarten teacher when she grew up, but it was by the sea of Sesimbra that she found her passion for the art world!
She dabbled in arts, but thanks to her teachers she realized that she wanted to make a difference in education and that the arts would be the path, not the destination.
A supporter of Education through Art, she explored different ways to achieve her goal already as an educator, and traveled to Iceland as an au pair to learn about new realities.
The use of technologies in pedagogy has proven to be an emerging theme, and now seeks to reconcile the best of these three worlds at ChildDiary.
Ariana Oliveira
Ariana OliveiraTrainer and Customer Success Specialist
Ariana was born in Setúbal. Although she loves the sea, she has a special affection for Trás-os-Montes where she could play freely in the street.
An unrecognized tire-racing champion, in her kindergarten class she was already saying that she was going to be like her kindergarten teacher. And that is exactly what happened.
Carolina Batista
Carolina BatistaSales Manager
Carolina was born and has always lived in Leiria, in a rural village surrounded by animals, so she loves the calm and tranquility of the countryside and being in contact with nature. Maybe this is why she wanted to be a marine biologist as a child, but at the same time, her passion for reading and communicating led her to get a degree in Communication and Media. Suddenly, what she wanted was to be a top-notch journalist, to share the truth with people and have the biggest scoops in journalism!
She eventually found another way to help people, through sales communication, which she loves by being able to help people with solutions she believes in, trusts and identifies with, like ChildDiary!
