Lancashire-based childcare management software specialist Connect Childcare has announced that four of the UK’s top nursery providers have renewed their contracts —resulting in a contract value of up to £2.5m over the next three years. .
The retained nursery groups are Busy Bees, Kids Planet, Partou UK, and The Old Station Nursery Group.
Commenting on the long standing partnerships with the nursery groups, Chris Reid, CEO of Connect Childcare, said: “ It’s with great delight that we continue long standing relationships with some of the largest groups in the UK. In today’s digital-first world, more nursery chains are turning to technology in a bid to streamline operations, centralise processes, and manage staff more efficiently.
“It’s an exciting time for the business as we continue to improve our software over the next 12 months. Following our latest round of investment and the announcement of our new chairman back in June 2023, we’re committed to supporting early years professionals through the continuous development of our platforms.”
As the software provider continues on its mission as the UK’s most trusted nursery management software, Connect’s head of commercial, John Pickup, said: “As we continue to develop our nursery management platform at pace, our aim will always be to continue providing support to our customers in the best possible way, helping them to reduce the time spent on manually intensive admin tasks and focus on what they do best: child development.”
