...easily set up, we had minor printer problems that were soon rectified by the excellent support service. I would rate this nursery software not 10/10 but 11/10 and would highly recommend the programme to any nursery owner!

We have been using Instant Nursery Manager for the past year and we would like to write and congratulate you on such a superb database system.
After opening our Nursery in November 2007 we worked with another system that had sold itself as the perfect package for all Nurseries. Finding it completely unworkable, despite spending £1000.00 on a personal training session and thinking it was my lack of computer experience that was making it all so complicated we persevered for 6 months. If only we had found your system first!
From the outset Instant Nursery Manager was clear, concise, easy to pick up and totally suited to our everyday needs. The help that we received from Michael during the setting up process was so efficient – right down to his knowing exactly which button had been pressed on which screen! Help given was clearly explained and the folder of Information that came with the Software, and the short video clips have been invaluable as we have spent time getting to know the system.
It is quite clear that this system has been created by someone who knows, with great insight, all the ins and outs of a busy nursery.
I cannot recommend this system highly enough – our only regret is that we didn’t find it sooner.

We started out as a small nursery four years ago with not too many children, but as we grew, found that we needed a management programme, and are so glad we found your Instant Nursery Manager, it has been an efficient tool from the first day and I am so glad I now don't have to work out those monthly invoices!!
Marian & Tony Best - Cherubs Firststeps, Chadwell St Mary
We've been using both the daycare and holiday club versions of Instant Nursery Manager for the past six years without a hitch. We are very impressed.

All in all the only word to use in FANTASTIC!!!
I purchased Instant Nursery Manager in September 2007 after researching other similar products and it's safe to say I made the best choice. I started using the program before I had even opened the nursery as I had a lot of people on the waiting list therefore it was great to show cash projections and future numbers, making my job easier. Even my business manager was impressed at how organised I was, little did he know I had hardly done a thing.
Now the nursery is up and running and has been for 6 months, the program still saves me so much time. Even though I'm the manager I would rather spend time with the children, this program allows me so much more time to do this.
The registers are easy and clear and the invoices are a dream, just click a button and they are done. Business wise it's great to be able to see cash flow projections and keep up to date with who is late with payments etc...
The support offered is second to none as for other companies who charge every time you contact them. The team at Instant Nursery Manager will guide you through everything step by step, they can even access your computer remotely if you are really stuck and sort the problem for you!
Katrina Taylor - Mawsley Day Nursery, Northampton
When I opened my nursery in 2006 I considered numerous nursery management software programmes before opting for Datamove's Preschooler system. I can honestly say I have never regretted my decision for one moment. It has proved to be intrinsic to the smooth running of my business - from childrens' emergency information at the touch of a button, helping me to plan my staffing ratios to invoicing and credit control functions and much much more - I would genuinely be lost without it.
We have used the Instant Nursery Manager here for the past 2 years. We are very impressed with the program and it makes the working day of the management team a lot easier!!
Just to say that the Instant Nursery Manager program is working wonderfully. It saved me a lot of time and effort. It is accurate and we find it very easy to use. When required your support is very good and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending your program to any nursery managers or owners.
Ray Kerler, Tinysaurus Nursery, Hove
Thank you very much for your help and advice. I am so pleased with the Preschooler programme - it covers all of the nursery needs, plus more. I have found it easy to use and back up. I particularly like the planning ahead programme helping me to organise the intake for September 2008 and even 2009. I would recommend any group to use this programme. I have an Ofsted inspection due any time now and hope to impress them with the organisation of our nursery, thanks to Preschooler! It is also so good to be able to pick up the phone and chat to the programme creator when I have a silly mistake that he knows how to instantly rectify!
Sharon Rea - New View Nursery, Horsham
I use Instant Nursery Manager and it has completely revolutionised our time management. From being a complete computerphobic this system is so user-friendly and practical. It certainly enhanced our last social services inspection due to the contribution it made to our record keeping, etc. The clients and staff are happy with this system and I cannot sing its praises enough.
Joe Walsh - De Verdun Nursery, Newbold Verdon
I would just like to let you know how invaluable we have found Instant Nursery Manager. It has saved us so much time and aggravation.
Valerie Wells - First Steps Day Nursery, Great Wilbraham
The Instant Nursery Manager has made a big difference to the efficiency of our business, we don't know how we managed without it!
Jo Kavakeb - Squirrels Day Nursery, Hertfordshire
We opened a new Nursery in London in October 2007 and purchased INM in January 2008, this was after using a very disappointing software program from a different company that we had first purchased, and cost us a lot of money with support at a premium rate numbers; and it did require many hours of support. Even then it did not do the job for us. I must say that INM is an excellent program, it caters for all management and financial reports that we need. The support care we received is way past of what one would expect. I very strongly recommend this product.
Orange Day Nursery, Hornsey, London
....we use the Out of School version, truly and utterly amazing, it's brilliant, fantastic!
Hayley Lynskey - Early Birds & Night Owls Out of School Club, Hertfordshire
We have a chain of three day nurseries within South Gloucestershire. We realised that as we grew that our way of managing our business was out of date and not up to the job. Datamove supplied us the software to take our business to that next level. Out of numerous software companies we looked at, Datamove offered us flexibility and bespoke software changes inline with our business needs. Combine this with a helpdesk service second to none, We owe a lot to Datamove.
