  • Keeping You Informed

    As part of our aim to become an eco-friendly business we also pride ourselves on keeping up to date with modern technology. It is important that all parents and carers are kept up to date with their child’s development within the nursery and as nursery practitioners it is part of our role to record your child’s development.

  • Online Systems

    Our online systems record all children’s development on a user friendly system for parents, carers and nursery staff. The system works using the Pre-Birth to Three Curriculum and Curriculum for Excellence. This allows the individual nurseries to add all children to the room they attend and also to their allocated key worker. This will be done all on your child’s first day. All we need is the child’s date of birth and the parents email address… simple! From this your child will be observed on a regular basis, each time an observation is added you will be sent a notification to alert you. This system also gives you the opportunity to feedback on your child’s observations.


    Our software allows all parents/carers to view all the daily activities and accounts etc. via a simple APP from their smart devices/phones. No more little pieces of paper with information, everything from activities to sleep, nappy or food patterns can be viewed at parent’s convenience.

  • Communicating With Parents

    All of our branches use an online email and text system to communicate with our parents with ease. In modern technology an email is quicker, eco-friendly and more cost effective. The emails can be sent to both parents and can also be accessed again using individual log in details. Text messages can be sent in emergency circumstances such as nursery closure, heating issues or anything else that may affect the day to day running of the nursery. We can also offer a paper copy if email is not suitable for individual families.
