Kelly from Babblebrooke Day Nursery
tells us her thoughts on Connect’s Nursery Management Software
Founded in 2013, Babblebrooke is a Loughborough based day nursery providing a fabulous childcare experience for all children aged from 3 months to five years.
Managing director Kelly Hutton tells us about her experience with Connect Childcare and their nursery management software.
We had only been open three weeks when we contacted Connect Childcare but we were really struggling with registers taking a long time to complete and our staff – who are only human – making mistakes with invoicing through the Sage system.”
Our daily occupancy rates were taking too much time to work out which meant a delay in allocating staff to rooms. All of these factors combined meant we were losing between £100 and £150 a week in missed bookings and billing so we needed a nursery management software package which would eradicate these mistakes and streamline our processes.”
The widget for working out staff occupancy for each day is a breeze and saves so much time for us, working out which staff need to be in which room to ensure the ratio of staff to children is adequate. Our registers also now take a fraction of the time they were doing and our invoices are accurate and easy – integrating into Sage really quickly.”
We now never miss a booking and all extra sessions are billed for without fail so we are not losing money!”
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Connect’s nursery management software to other users as the money we have invested in the system has improved the quality of Babblebrooke in areas from registers and dietary requirements to session planning, invoicing, chasing aged debt and staff management. It has paid for itself in a short period of time and I could not effectively do my job without it.”
