Testimonials & Success Stories

Hear what some of our happy customers have to say about OWNA

EXCEEDING Achieved (May 2019)

"I wanted to say thank you for all your support in the lead up to our rating and assessment. I know we’d sent a lot of questions and requests and you guys were on top of it without dramas at all. Making the change to OWNA only 3 months before we got the letter meant we were still learning and finding our feet with the software but with your support it was a really smooth transition."

"The overall feedback about OWNA was great, the assessor found it easy to navigate and felt it really covered key factors for our industry. I look forward to working with you as this great product continues to grow. We will be moving another Centre over during May."
Liz Pennings
Area Manager - Montessori Garden, Inspiring Minds & Perfect Beginnings

EXCEEDING (Apr 2019)

"The OWNA App was vital to us receiving Exceeding as it is used on a daily basis to share information with the families about their child's day. This is an easy tool for strong communication and partnership between the centre and families. Our families rave about the OWNA app and how easy it is to receive live information on their child's day at Wyralla Road Kindergarten. The OWNA App also helped us with the compliance aspect of the assessment and rating process as all checklists were on the app, educators signed in and outs were logged and more."
Melissa & Carissa
Co-Directors - Wyralla Road Kindergarten

EXCEEDING (Feb 2019)

"When we went through A&R, the assessor said the App was 'Easy to understand, easy to navigate and loved that it can be updated with new features that work for individual centres!'"
Julie Phillipe
Director - Revesby Uniting Church Child Care's Director

EXCEEDING (Dec 2018)

"The Aurora App has been instrumental in making our service more efficient with communication and engaging with families. Particular features like hand over notes, medical administration, person in charge, signing off check lists and other compliance functions makes Service Governance much easier and improves systems to better administer and manage the service. Working with OWNA has been easy, particularly the response times and communication to our service needs. We find that extremely useful and we like working with Kheang and his team."
Sheela Edwards
CEO - Aurora Early Education
