What Our Customers Say...

One of the best information and training website, I must say.  Always updating with latest changes in the early years sector.


The team have always provided me with excellent customer service which in my opinion is your core strength. The process has always been easy due to their clear instructions.

I was particularly impressed with the service during lockdown as the Parenta Team were always available. Their excellent service never faltered and the team continued to respond in a very timely manner. This provided me with a welcome stress and worry free process during a difficult time.

Littlebrook Nurseries

We have had excellent service from Parenta. You have listened to what we needed, and wanted, and have delivered every time. The service has been personal and efficient. I cannot fault anything Parenta has done for us, we really appreciate everything. Thank you.

Could not recommend Caroline enough! An extremely approachable and helpful member of the Parenta staff. It is a pleasure to deal with her on a regular basis!

Get My First Job Ltd

First class customer service. Amie was polite and professional. She talked me through several problems I had (operator error from my side) and is always gentle with an old girl like myself. Considering your staff are working from home, that service I received I thought was as excellent as it always is. Well done Amie, I will no doubt have more problems as it is quiet here for me to test your system further. Stay safe and well everyone.

Thank you Parenta for making the registration process for my out-of-school club so easy! Your customer service has excelled, and you are always happy to help, making me feel like a valued customer.

Laura Thornley, The Club Steyning

I am writing to express my deep appreciation and compliment one of your excellent employees for the attention and concern shown by her last week…I have always received quality service from all of your abacus team and Richelle’s extended help is a prime example of this.

The distance you travelled and time you spent with us were such a good investment as the Parenta system has instantly solved my dilemma. We are very excited about the system and can`t wait to get started with it. It will solve so many admin issues and makes for a much more professional service and will save us so much time and effort.
