Will I be paying for the software based on my ECE licence?
Yes, you will pay based on your service licence. With a minimum monthly charge of $40 per month and a maximum monthly charge of $100 per month per centre.
As an example, if you are a 50-licence service, you will be paying $50 + GST every month and if you are a 30-licence service, you will be paying $40 + GST every month and if you are a 150-licence service, you will be paying $100 + GST every month.
Will you help us with our data migration from APT/First Base/ Info-care/ Discover when we change over to Juniorlogs?
Yes, we will help you set up your current enrolments, parents, and staff members. You will need to keep a copy of all your previous years’ data from your other system backed up for your own records.
Will I need to run an RS7 before the changeover and submit a paper version to the MOE for the next funding round?
This is applicable if you are changing mid pay period only
Yes, you will be submitting the RS7 in two parts –
● Submit the portion of your claim electronically, for the full month/s you have been using Juniorlogs, and
● Send the paper-based RS7 forms to the ECE Funding mailbox: ECE.Funding@education.govt.nz for the month/s before you began using this system.
The Ministry will then combine this information for your upcoming payment.
Do I need to export all my data from APT/ First Base/ Info-care/ Discover before the changeover date?
The Ministry has stated that
“The Ministry does not have any requirements around migrating historical data when a service changes SMS provider. As per the Q&A section of our ELI Public page and section 20.2 of the ELI Data Collection specification, only data for children with an open enrolment must be transferred to the new SMS:
However, the onus is on services to ensure they can access and provide the relevant records in the event of a Ministry funding audit. Items like enrolment/attendance/staffing records need physical signatures on them, so services should already be holding paper/scanned copies.
Chapter 11 of the Funding Handbook also outlines the requirements for service record keeping – https://www.education.govt.nz/early-childhood/funding-and-data/funding-handbooks/ece-funding-handbook/chapter-11-record-keeping/
What sort of system is needed to run the app?
You can use any standard Android (Samsung) tablet/ Apple (iPads) that will allow you to download an app from Playstore/AppStore and download and install it on your device.
What is the process to get started with Juniorlogs?
You will first need to sign up for Juniorlogs once you decide on a changeover date. We’ll set up your new Juniorlogs account with current enrolments and staff/educator details. This means your data migration will be taken care of. There will be a one-off cost for data migration.
We will have your account ready and would have handed over a fully ready system a week before the Go Live date.
When do I end current enrolments with my other system?
Get a copy of all your previous RS7 and ECE Returns and any other financial reports.
End all enrolments on the day before your Juniorlogs start date.
Start marking your attendance in Juniorlogs from Day 1 of the changeover.
