Our Story & Method

Our Story

1Place Childcare is a cloud-based multi-site management system helping early childcare centres stay on top of compliance and paperwork.

Our intuitive software replaces paper-based checklists with an online tool that can be used by anyone, anywhere your business is. This allows management staff to keep track of multiple sites at a glance.

The key to our success is in our software’s ability to monitor tasks via online checklists and dashboards as they are completed – in real-time – rather than after an event has occurred. Gathering data in this proactive way means you can stay on top of potential issues that may arise.

Based on a continuous improvement model of checking, measuring, acting and monitoring, 1Place gives you the visibility you need for your centres to operate smoothly, increase performance and, ultimately, grow.

We understand and thrive on the ever-advancing nature of technology (which has evolved dramatically since 1Place was established in 2007!). Our friendly team of developers, client service managers and account managers work in collaboration, constantly looking at ways to improve and innovate the 1Place software so that we continue to provide solutions that meet – and exceed – the diverse and changing needs of our clients.

Our Method

Check

Our smart systems make audit checks and inspections easy. Customise your checklists to fit your business and complete audits using computer, smartphone, iPad or Android devices. Quickly add photos and other notes to create a detailed picture.

Measure

The 1Place weighting system intuitively compares key metrics such as complaints and incidents across your centres. Create benchmark expectations, communicate targets clearly to your team and drive consistent results.

Act

Identify areas that need action, create tickets, delegate repairs or maintenance issues directly to suppliers and track progress. This provides a clear audit trail to manage risk and record mitigating actions, reducing directors’ exposure to liability.

Monitor

With 1Place’s smart dashboard, managers can see at a glance where audits or inspections are due, actions that need following up and even compare site performance. View the metrics that matter to your centres and drill down to details with a single click.
