Before they got started, there was one thing they needed to sort out. “As the previous owner went through the basics of her paper-based management system with us, it occurred to me that it would be amazing if I could get something digital to do a lot of it.” Anna explains.
Not even sure if such a system even existed, Anna set about researching and trialling a number of choices before settling on the right system. “As soon as I saw what Famly looked like, I knew that would be the way forward,” she says. “It’s easy to navigate and offered everything that I was looking for.”
Anna and her team wanted a system that was easy to use and came with the help that they needed to get up and running straight away.
“In our online trial, I was absolutely delighted with how user-friendly it was,” explains Anna. “What’s more, we were supported every step of the way – our online tutorials were invaluable and the team were always able to answer my questions straight away.”
“We use it extensively every single day to keep in touch with parents, plan staffing, send invoices and keep track of children’s time at nursery. We use the room planning all the time. It is a huge time saver. I honestly do not know how we would keep track of everything without Famly.”
It’s not just the current parents that have been attracted to Fledglings’ new system. “When parents come for a visit to have a look around, I show them Famly straight away on the computer.” says Anna, “Parents really go for that.”
“They say “Wow, I’ve never seen anything like that before.” because the platform looks so nice,” Anna explains, “It just feels like that is a real selling point.”
Now, Fledglings can make sure parents old and new see all the great work they put into creating that caring environment that is so important to them.
And what about the other nurseries in the area? Are they going to catch on? “I’m sure other people will start using things like this, but at the moment we’re the only ones in our area.” Anna explains, “And long may it last!”
