Butterflies Child and Baby Care Services in London has been running for nine years, catering for around 50 children. Butterflies’ ethos is ‘every child matters’ and every child is special and equally important. The setting operates in beautiful grounds with plenty of outdoor space.
We spoke with nursery owner Danielle Melville to find out how she’s been getting on as a new user of Abacus.
1. How long have you been using Abacus?
We’re relatively new to Abacus, but have been using it officially for three months.
2. How easy did you find the setup process?
Setting up a new system for any business has its challenges and although staff found it difficult to start using to begin with, the support and training provided by the Parenta team has been excellent. Now staff are much more comfortable using the system.
3. What feature do you like most about Abacus?
Staff at Butterflies particularly like the mail merge option as this has made communication with parents much easier and we’ve had positive reviews from parents regarding this. We’re also looking forward to being able to track at the touch of a button [with an add-on to Abacus called Footsteps], once all the information regarding the children’s development has been put into the system.
4. How would you describe the support you get from our team?
I’d describe it as excellent. There is no query the team cannot help with and whenever we’ve spoken to them, they always go above and beyond to help us.
5. Would you recommend Abacus to another childcare provider?
Yes – in fact we’ve recommended it to others already!
