This study reported the staging of process on developing a mobile application for real-time data management information system on monitoring and feedback in early child education, it can help tracking child education and assist teacher in monitoring and feedback on child services. A study was carried out to gather necessary information through data mapping, in-depth interviews with key stakeholders, document reviews, application development, direct entry in the field using mobile development, application testing and analysis that was conducted on for 145 children. To obtain a full picture on early childhood education, data on childhood education shall be mapped and linked in one application. We introduce a mobile app to systematically compile the individual as well as group data (i.e. village or district profiles) across different aspects of child life, ranging from early child education. Using a tablet PC or mobile phone, data could be easily entered at anytime by the person. Due to still poor infrastructure at the grass root level, the system also allows a safety store offline that could automatically link to server when network connection is available. The immediate data entry will provide real-time data report that could be accessed by any relevant stakeholders at any levels to response accordingly. However, to avoid misuse of data, the access will also be restricted with a secured login system. Based on the study, this application is easily applicable for real-time monitoring and feedback on early child education.
