Collect early childhood program incident data and make active, data-driven decisions to create the kind of program where every child is successful.

The Early Childhood School-Wide Information System

EC-SWIS is your comprehensive, online home for understanding the behaviors happening in your building every day.

EC-SWIS gives you the power of the School-wide Information System (SWIS) combined with the Behavior Incident Report System (BIRS) tailored to match the realities of early childhood settings. You get the same efficient data entry space, the same powerhouse reports, the same customization options updated to reflect the behaviors, schedules, and follow-up options unique to your program.

Let EC-SWIS improve your decision making in ways you never thought possible.


Incident Data

If you’re going to collect data, make the
information meaningful. What if there was a way for you to know:

  • How often do behavior incidents happen in our program?
  • What are the most common behaviors we see?
  • During which activities do behaviors happen most often?
  • How do the adults respond to these behaviors?
  • What are our best guesses for why these behaviors happen in the first place?

Incident Entry

When time is valuable, you need efficient tools to fit with the systems you already have.


Powerhouse Reports

15 program-wide reports come standard with every subscription. With one click:


Exclusive Reports

Two specialized reports just for early childhood programs.

  • The Activity Report gives you a lens into the behaviors happening during specific moments in the day.
  • The Response Report highlights the strategies teachers use every day to respond to the behaviors they see
  • Closely monitor behaviors happening program-wide all the way down to the individual child.
  • Integrate seamlessly with CICO-SWIS 
    and I-SWIS.

Focus on Equity

Let the Equity Report describe how children experience program-wide discipline based on their race, ethnicity, gender, language, or IEP status.

  • Immediately find the answers to the question, “Do we refer and suspend all groups equally in our school?”
  • Interpretive sentences included with each graph eliminate guesswork and guide you through decision making.
  • Break down incident rates by the included demographic data.
