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