Instant Invoicing

Available instantly on the parent app

As soon as you send an invoice through your nursery management system, parents receive an email with the invoice attached.

All invoices are then available live on Parent Admin so you never have to worry about the bill payer “I didn’t receive the invoice”.

Parents and bill payers can also download the invoice and payment receipt from the parent admin app so it’s easier all round.

Book holiday and absence

Parents can book holidays online with the Parent Admin App

Holidays & absence

Parents can book holidays, absences or sickness through the parent app to save time. This auto sends a notification to the nursery and updates the daily registers in real time.

Parents can also block book if their child is going to be off on holiday or sick for a period of time so nurseries are always informed.

Automatically updates registers so you always know your staff to child ratio.

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 🙂
