I have been using Nursery in a Box now since December 2021, having tried a couple of others systems. This is by far the easiest to navigate around and the team are so helpful. If you have any issues just do a ticket and they answer you query straight away. I would highly recommend this system.

This company and their service is second to none. We have now been with NIB for 4 years and it was the best decision we ever made. It has made our nursery journey ever so efficient and effective. Every single time we contact them they are able to answer our calls or email almost immediately. We have asked them for their advice and help and they have always taken it on board our thoughts. We now have 4 settings and are delighted with the system and service. If anyone is considering moving to a nursery management system this is the one! Dave and his team offered us amazing advice when we first started out, given his vast experience with finances and how nurseries operate. Could NOT be happier!
