Amazing service - I sent a support ticket with a quire and was expecting an explanation of possibly how to sort it - instead within 10 minutes, the problem had been rectified by the NIAB team saving me valuable time and stress!

What a great product! I couldn’t recommend it more. Managing every aspect of your nursery is simpler thanks to Nursery in a Box. It is easy to use; the team is very efficient and friendly. They have been very quick on responding to any questions or issues I had. Their expertise and knowledge come from first-hand experience and it shows in how the system is built and developed. David’s advice while supporting and helping with our fees and their structures, funding and Consumables was an eye opener and a learning curve for me.

Very impressed with the software and all the features that are included with it. After testing a few different options, we were suggested Nursery in a Box by another nursery and they weren't wrong. It has everything we needed and more and it's made the switch from paper to digital so much easier. Support is also amazing and very quick in answering any questions we have. Highly recommended!

We have used Nursery in a Box for a couple of years now and its been great, especially when covid started. We were able to communicate effectively with all the parents and everyone found it really helpful. We use many features of the site, and if we have had any problems they have always rectified this for us for us to be able to use it to the full potential! Thank you 🙂
