As a new nursery group on the block, Tenderlinks Day Nursery wanted to make sure that from the very beginning they got their software right. They needed to be able to accurately forecast, manage budgets and still communicate easily with parents and their team. That’s where Famly came in.
To find out more about their story, we headed down to leafy Godalming (after a brief train-station-related mixup) and met with Vicki-Leigh and her brilliant team at Tenderlinks Godalming.
Who are Tenderlinks Nursery?
Tenderlinks Day Nursery is a four-setting nursery group located south of London, with settings in Norbury, Twickenham, Streatham and Godalming. They’re focused on making sure their nurseries feel like a ‘home away from home’, providing high-quality early years education for every child.
What will I learn?
Manager Vicki-Leigh explains the way that Famly offers a straightforward solution for staff and parents alike, helping to strengthen those vital partnerships. It’s also made a big difference for the Tenderlinks team that staff didn’t need to spend too long recording observations, instead quickly taking a photo, writing up a draft and getting straight back to spending quality time with the children.
You’ll also hear from Room Leader Joy about just how much simpler everything is without having to chase after hoards of paperwork to get things done.
What are they saying?
“Famly is definitely strengthening our parent partnerships because staff can quickly note down meaningful observations and then come back to them later – ensuring we can stay focused on the children.”
“The support at Famly has been great, someone’s always there on the phone to help you, should you need it, and there’s a lot of useful articles in the help centre.”
