Nursery in a Box support team are life savers! We have just opened our new nursery, connected to our primary school so it is all a bit new to me. The support I receive is brilliant, very fast and they don't mind me constantly asking questions, they are always quick to respond and I could not be without them. The management system is wonderful, I wish we had it for our mainstream children, they have thought of everything to help organise our children. Well done Nursery in a Box team 🙂

This is the best booking system we have ever had. It is so easy to use, bookings are a breeze but more importantly if you want to change/cancel or any amendment it is done with one click. On our old system is was clicking every single day to make the changes sometimes for the rest of the school year! but on here its one tick to change. Invoices are very professional and parents can download their own receipts for Universal Credit etc. This is just one side of the system but the best for me 🙂 Support is second to none, one message when you need help and in my experience they answer within about 15 mins! In setting they can use the registers quickly and easily, have 2 way contact with parents for absences and accident forms are a doddle. In all you must use this as your complete system if you run any sort of after school club/nursery.

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.
