    What a wonderful initiative.

    Will this interface with software applications already being used for children education and care – such as StoryPark?

    Kind regards, Ema

      Hi Ema,

      Thanks for your lovely comment and for getting in touch. ChildStory will offer a lot of great features and benefits to help us work directly with children and families, but integrating with other systems can be extremely difficult! We will be upskilling caseworkers on how to better use a range of digital tools (such as StoryPark) as part of their day to day work.

      Thank you
      ChildStory team

    Do you think you can do an article about how ChildStory will be able to support and assist managers and caseworkers keep track of all the tasks that are needed in a way that KiDS never could. This is the big question that everyone is asking but there seems to be no mention of it. KiDS couldn’t meet the needs of the Senior Exec or managers so there began a series of labour intensive measures such as Baseline Reports, CSC’s were developing and running their own spreadsheets then of course there is the ‘Dashboard’ and of course everyone is also maintaining ‘QAMT’ spreadsheets. KiDS was a clunky database that wouldn’t allow effective queries even for CIW. Tell us that ChildStory will do all of this and we won’t have to be looking in 3-4 places to get the info we need.



    ps.. yes it might be a bit technical but I’d love to read it.
