The Storypark Alternative

Want to know how One Child stacks up against Storypark? We’ve put together some compelling reasons why One Child could be the best option for you and a great alternative to Storypark.

There is no argument that using an online digital documentation program is a great way to record all your centre’s program planning, observations and reflections. It is also a very convenient way to share some information with parents and build community while getting feedback to help extend your program.

Storypark and One Child have many similar features including:

  • standard documentation formats for creating and sharing learning stories with parents,
  • easy linking of pre populated frameworks and curriculum’s to documentation,
  • useful statistical packages which provide insightful feedback to highlight areas of child achievement and give lead educators the ability to make informed decisions on future programming direction.
  • Journalling, a convenient way to record information about a group of children and share with parents.

So why choose One Child over Storypark?

Here are a couple of things that we think sets us apart from Storypark.


We think that our pricing is the least complicated and represents great value for all child care providers. See our pricing for your centre.

Our paid plan gives full access to our entire suite of tools and is an uncomplicated flat rate. This makes it simple for a centre to know what their cost is up front. Storypark charges from $0.99 to $1.29 per active child per month which can become quite costly and difficult to calculate.

Example*: A small centre with 75 active enrollments could save more than $350 annually by using oneChild.

N.B. Active children include all children who use your service not just the maximum licensed number.
* calculated on $0.99 per active child per month as outlined on the Storypark website. This comparison example does not include any discounts or pricing structures not advertised by Storypark on their website.

Educational Threads™

One Child has a unique system we call Threads™, which enables educators to link observations\learning stories to planning and then see a visual representation of the learning progression in the current observation.
Threads™ also provides a convenient way to navigate between linked documents which can be particularly useful during centre reviews or assessment and ratings.


Saving time and reducing the workload of educators in relation to documentation was the inspiration for our templating feature. Templates enable educators to create a planned activity and save it as a template to share and reuse throughout your centre, time and time again.
It is a great way to reduce duplication of data entry and enable an educator to create a documented planned activity, in a fraction of the time it would take to create a new plan.
