Working collaboratively with families is essential for building your service. With the app, you can increase family engagement through:

  • Access: parents are able to see all of their child’s information, and be part of the learning and development process.

  • Engagement: Family members can make posts, comments, complete custom forms inc excursion, feedback or goal setting.

Get ready for assessment and rating by getting all of your compliance documents in place, ready to show the assessor. Documents include:

“ This software has it all. Everything in one place and very user friendly. The support is excellent!

OWNA lets me have an overall snapshot of what's happening in the centre at one glance. It has also reduced paper and improved transparency for all team members. ”
