We're proud to partner with leading software provider Tanda

The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) is proud to announce a new partnership with workforce management software provider Tanda.


The Tanda software platform is Australia's leading rostering, attendance and award interpretation software, providing a range of practical features that make managing your educators a breeze.

Tanda has been proudly working with a number of ACA-affiliated members for many years, helping Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) providers across Australia roster and pay their staff accurately.

How can Tanda help streamline workforce administration? 

Tanda's software is designed to allow service providers to manage their staff, cut out administration and make sure employees are always paid correctly. 


The platform consolidates all relevant information in one place, making scheduling employees easy and effortless. You can keep track of your team members' time off, monitor the expiration dates of their qualifications, and stay on top of overtime pro-actively.


Employee time and attendance is recorded to the minute by digital time clocks. From here, Tanda’s industry-leading Award Interpreter calculates how much staff need to be paid, and exports it directly to a payroll system of your choice.


Award interpretation 

Tanda’s market-leading Award Interpreter automatically calculates employee pay, penalty rates, overtime, and other entitlements so you can pay staff correctly and on time every time.

Base rates, overtime, allowances, higher duties — Tanda has you covered.

Their dedicated team has combed through the details of the Children’s Services Award to make sure you're complying with every requirement.

Working together to benefit our members

Tanda Head of Childcare Solutions, Saxon Wright, says the opportunity to partner with the Australian Childcare Alliance is exciting. 


“We know that the ACA is the industry leader in early learning excellence. Under this partnership, we’ll work with ACA members to deliver excellence in early learning care”.


“Tanda is a complete workforce management solution with features for rostering, time & attendance and award interpretation. It integrates seamlessly with all major Australian payroll systems and industry-specific tools like ChildHR and Kidsoft, to streamline processes and make them easy.”
