You’ve Used Some of the Other Childcare Management Systems Out There like Xplor, Storypark or Qikkids.

Manage your service
All-In-One Childcare Management System

If you work in a childcare centre, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how much work there is to do outside of providing the education. Over-the-top documentation, endless admin, constant customer service. When do you actually get the time to teach the children you’re supposed to be responsible for?

With the help of a Child Care Management System, things can become a lot easier for everyone involved.

What is a Childcare Management System?

Also known as a CCMS, a Childcare Management System is the software used by childcare centres to administer the Child Care Subsidy (CCS). These systems allow the childcare centre to communicate with the relevant government agencies - as well as parents - to make sure the correct payments are made at the correct time.

Childcare Management Systems are used by childcare centres to:

Provide the correct information about CCS sessions to the department, Receive CCS subsidy payments from the department, Pass those subsidies onto families, AND Provide a way for families to pay gap fees to the centre

Typically, a CCMS will just do these things. But as the requirements for educators grows in terms of the amount of work they have to do, a new kind of system has been introduced - the All-In-One Childcare Management System.

Why An All-In-One CCMS Is The Way Forward

Compared to the first iteration of the CCMS, All-In-One Childcare Management Systems combine the features needed to manage CCS with everything else needed to run a childcare centre. These include everything from developing curriculum programs and documenting a child’s learning, to parent communication and staying compliant with childcare regulations.

Many staff at childcare centres do multiple roles, so instead of logging into on system for doing CCS, another for managing educators, and another for facilitating education, OWNA puts it all into one place. That’s why OWNA is Australia's favourite - and only true - All-In-One Childcare Management System.

The Only Choice for Childcare Centres

OWNA has consistently outperformed CCMS competitors in independent surveys. And for good reason. Whilst most childcare management systems are rigid, generic and standardised, OWNA has taken an approach that focuses on flexibility and customisation.

Unlike other systems available, our software is developed with the specific needs of each individual centre in mind. By customising your programs and documentation to make it easier for your staff to give the best education possible, to embedding your policies and philosophies into the app to make it reflect your service, we put you in the driver's seat and let you take control of your own workload.

Software can be easily downloaded onto smartphones and tablets, allowing staff to access all the information and data they need to do their jobs effectively. Management can be assured that everything is happening correctly with regards to Child Care Subsidy (CCS), compliance & parent communication. And families can access everything they need to keep up-to-date with their child’s learning/routines, as well as set up regular payments so they don’t fall behind on their bills.

By keeping everything in one place, we’re making it easier than ever to keep all of your stakeholders happy, and give you a thriving business that is the beating heart of the community.
