Elizabeth Hassay

No job is too big, no query too small

2017-02-13

From simple registration of both children and staff, to invoicing as well as having information about each child to hand (allergies, emergency contacts) this management software program gives you back time!

Pros

Both on a management and FD level.

Cons

sign in/out not currently compatible on mobile phone only iPad.

Recommendations to others considering Famly

An indication of children due to attend each day is essential.. as without we would need to refer to another spreadsheet/ app. Which defeats the purpose.

Famly is a key communication tool for our business

2017-06-15

Nothing we dislike. The more we use Famly, we are able to see how additional functions could help us and will relay these to the support team.

Pros

They love to see posts with photos and video of children's activities during the day and keep track of their child's key care needs e.g. sleep times and nappies.

it has saved us some much time as a management team, allowing us to spend more with the children.

2018-02-21

TIME

Pros

everything is all in one place, from invoicing to child development. makes life very easy for a busy nursery.

Cons

child development app as a nursery some of our parents don't us famly as English is an additional language or they don't have access to the internet freely and don't get to see the child's observations and assessments unless shown, and when we print these off for a child's development file it misses photos off, which is what most of our parents enjoy most about observation.

Growing Daycare Management Software

2018-02-27

Pros

What we love most is how helpful this is at automatically planning how many spaces you'll have now and in the future.

Cons

This software is still earlier in development. In a year or so it looks like they will have an all in one software package that includes automated payments. Right now there is a payment component but it is not automated.

Famly is easy to use and helps with the daily running of the nursery.

2018-02-22

Pros

It's really easy to see how many children are due in each day and even in future months.

Cons

Nappy change feature could do with a 'comments' box to add who had changed and any notes to pass on to parents.

The software has changed our business it helps us manage occupancy, absence and parent communication

2017-05-30

Pros

Measuring our occupancy to maximise the business and the fantastic customer service provided by all staff from Famly but especially our account manager Martin!

Cons

That it doesn't have the learning journey live yet but I've been told its being worked on and will be added to the system soon so there isn't really anything else to 'least like' - the system is fabulous for our setting

Great software, makes everything so easy and customer service is outstanding!

2017-06-21

It's made the whole of my admin role much easier. As a manager of a small but busy Pre school setting I wear many hats!

Pros

Parents can update their own records enabling you to jeep up to date quickly and easily with changes of contact details.

Cons

The only downside is that parents need an email address to register. We only have one parent this affects.

I can honestly say my life has been transformed after moving to Famly as I have so much more time.

2017-06-01

easy to use and rate the company.So far I have not found using Famly frustrating in anyway nor do I dislike any part of it.

Pros

The parents are also finding the invoicing/payments overview very useful so they can manage their account easily, this contains all the information they need and again is simple to read so no explanation from me is necessary, this again saves so much time as previously I had to send regular breakdowns to parents.
