Famly is a GDPR-compliant digital platform that offers nurseries an all-in-one solution for communicating, learning journals, and invoicing.
Parents and carers are allocated an individual login to the Famly system allowing access to your child’s online profile.
Here are some comments that we have received from our most recent parent questionnaire (November 2020):
“The Famly system is great. I love getting pictures during the day, seeing what my child is doing. I also enjoy knowing what themed learning there is each week because it gives me the opportunity to expand on that at home. “
“All staff are warm and welcoming to my child. They clearly work very hard, especially with the current restrictions. We enjoy receiving updates via famly”
“Happy with all staff at the nursery and how well you have dealt with this pandemic and keeping the children and staff safe.”
“Very happy with the care provided. No complaints whatsoever.”
