Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the challenges met by the respondents in monitoring students’ performance in Mathematics to develop an interactive learning system. The study used the Descriptive Research Method. Respondents were pooled from the day care centers based on their proximity and availability. Sample population reached twenty-five (25) parents and eighteen (18) teachers. The Child Development Centers are all government facilitated schools. These day care centers are located in Marikina City. The selected parents are those who have computers and internet at home. The survey questionnaire was used as the main data gathering. The result of the study showed that the experienced monitoring challenges of the parents were lack of materials, such as reviewers, lessons and learning tools were not provided to them, while the experienced monitoring challenges of the teachers were lack of updates about the learner’s assessment and numerical evaluation. Respondents agreed that they ‘highly accept’ the system; therefore, using the interactive learning system in monitoring students’ performance became easier for both of them as well as boosted the students’ interest in learning Mathematics because of visual presentation and animation. The researcher concluded that in terms of monitoring students’ performance, the use of materials such as reviewers, lessons, learning tools is significant to parents and it was suggested that the display of grades and teacher’s remarks should be improved. The researcher is highly recommending considering the integration and utilization of information communication technology and multimedia to the early childhood care, education and curriculum to the day care centers. Teachers and parents should be trained about the use of the system and be oriented on the importance of technology to enhance monitoring and teaching.
