Behind the scenes at Storypark HQ, we have been working on an exciting new partnership to bring you an advanced Child Care Management Software solution that integrates with Storypark. A new partnership between Storypark and Xap Technologies are jointly offering early childhood education and care centres in Australia a powerful technology solution that provides the most advanced, customisable cloud-based CCMS software, alongside Australia’s leading family engagement, pedagogical practice and professional development platform.

Storypark is used and loved by thousands of ECE organisations across Australia. As a purpose-led organisation, Storypark empowers ECE professionals to build meaningful, ongoing relationships with families and embed quality pedagogical practice with an unmatched depth of functionality and ease of use. The team at Storypark are driven by our purpose and values. We are committed to making a meaningful difference for children, families, educators and ECE organisations. 

Xap is the latest evolution of KidsXap. They have re-engineered their technology to develop XAP 2.0 using the latest technology. They offer the most advanced CCMS platform in Australia, bringing new innovations that incorporate business intelligence tools to automate more than 65 manual tasks. Saving around 1.5 hours of administrative time daily, their feature-rich software has been specifically designed with the needs of modern early learning services in mind. 

Storypark has integrated Xap’s technology with Storypark to create Storypark Manage. 

Peter Dixon co-CEO at Storypark says “Bringing these platforms together is an incredibly exciting development for us, our customers and the broader ECEC community. The depth of Storypark’s functionality combined with the advanced technology and automation in Xap will maximise outcomes not just for families and children, but also for owners, staff and organisations.”

Bringing these platforms together means ECE organisations in Australia can have the best of both worlds. 

The partnership also enables new possibilities in supporting children and families transitions into an early learning centre by automatically creating a profile for children when they enrol. This means families can document what’s most important for their child and their family. Educators can then better understand and support them during what is always a challenging time for children and families – and an important business process for ECE organisations in building occupancy.

The recent rapid changes within the CCMS provider space has found a lot of early learning organisations being left in a position where they need to reevaluate their options. At a time when there is already a lot of change and uncertainty, being pushed to make such a big decision has led to confusion, pressure, and stress. Storypark Manage, powered by Xap is a powerful technology solution that gives you the tools to manage your centre, your way.

For multi-site early learning and outside school hours service providers, Storypark Manage offers unrivalled functionality that delivers efficiencies and cost-savings across the board and empowers organisations to enhance their family experience from waitlist through enrolment and build competitive advantage in an increasingly competitive landscape.  

“We want to help ECE services to create an ecosystem of products that work best for them – their team, their families and the children they’re in service to” says Peter.
