ECD App Principles

I am enjoying the business of running a preschool again. This app – it’s like a computer in my hand. I am saving time, I am learning how to be more independent and in control of my business, and I am getting more time to work with my teachers and the children.

ECD TEACHERS can use this free app too

The Meerkat app helps you manage your classroom, assess your learners, develop your skills and engage with parents. (Only available to teachers who’s centre owners are using Grow ECD Giraffe).

  • Daily learner attendance with a tap
  • Learner assessments and reports
  • Professional development training for preschool teachers (data-free)
  • Parent engagement
  • Downloadable resources

I am using the data-free training to improve my skills and I also download lots of education resources. Daily attendance is so easy now – I just tap! I am proud to work in a school that's more professional and using technology.
