OWNAthe all-in-one child care management software (CCMS) provider, has confirmed the launch of fully customizable program scheduling functionality as it continues its efforts to provide educators with high-end digital tools quality, modern, flexible and easy to use to support the delivery of their programs.
“We are very excited to once again announce the launch of a new feature for OWNA platform users,” said Kheang Ly, Founder and CEO.
“Our new model directly addresses the challenge posed by hard-coded programming systems and, in line with our broader philosophy of innovation and service delivery excellence, presents another reason why OWNA remains at the forefront of CCMS platform technology in the Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) sector.
“Effective curriculum planning and scheduling is at the heart of quality early learning,” Kheang continued.
“By providing a fully customizable tool, particularly in the areas of language and terminology, we are confident that we will not only have a positive impact on the day-to-day activities of our educators, but also on the experiences of the children they educate and care for.”
Consultation process identifies limitations of current curriculum programming solutions
OWNA conducted a period of extensive consultation with leaders and educators from across its community, as well as well-known pedagogical experts, to enact the changes after it became clear to the team that programming systems static single-block, weekly or pdf-only study programs are particularly limiting.
Additionally, comments about the suitability of particular fields included in templates, restrictions on customizing titles and subtitles, or insufficient space to properly capture assessments have left many educators frustrated with their inability to truly personalize. their programming models to reflect the particular philosophy and practice of their services. .
“We are very fortunate to have a community of engaged and experienced educators using OWNA solutions as well as a strong network across the industry, so ask for feedback on how we can continue to evolve and update. level our system is relatively simple,” Kheang said. .
“Thanks to them, we are once again able to address these many points that are holding people back with a set of templates that are not only easy to use but comprehensive enough to make a real difference.”
Custom programming a welcome addition to the OWNA ecosystem
OWNA’s Custom Curriculum Programming Module will complement a period of intense innovation within the group and complement the group’s customizable learning documentation feature that was rolled out in December 2021.
Key features of the new feature include, but are not limited to:
- School leaders and educators can create programs in any form
- A built-in die builder allows full customization

- Fields can be marked as required to ensure key information is always present
- Programs can be shared across departments to ensure consistent program delivery
- Parent view can be managed via hidden or displayed fields
“Our programming matrix and experience template editor are the main drivers of the functionality and value of our custom templates,” Kheang said.
“The inherent flexibility of module technologies means that, unlike in the past, there are no longer any limits to how creative and prescriptive educators want to be in their programming ambitions.”
“This is incredibly exciting for us because, of course, it trickles down to children in a high-quality early learning delivery, while also providing educators with an easier route to delivering the programs of their choice.”
OWNA’s custom programming models will launch on August 8, 2022.
