Automate your funding hours

Funding features

Funding Hours & Revenue
Track and manage your funding hours by revenue, age, week, term, month or by year so you never miss any. See funding reports and insights by age or revenue. See funding % for your nursery so you can maximise consumable and additional service charges. Funding hours are clearly displayed and itemised on your invoice to meet local authority requirements.

Automate Funding Hours & shortfalls
Automatically apply funding to your children’s booking patterns either individually or in bulk quickly and easily and take the stress away from applying your funded hours. The funding received from the local authority in most cases does not cover the full cost of childcare so you can charge a suitable amount accordingly.

Tax-free childcare
Track and manage tax-free childcare (TFC) payments simply and easily. Show tax free childcare payments clearly on the Parent Admin app with parents able to update HMRC funding codes easily.

What nursery & preschool leaders say about us…

Early Learners Nurseries
Hayden McCann
Early Learners Nurseries

On average, the software saves me around £4,000 per month in secretarial and administrative costs across the sites – and that’s before I’ve accounted for the reduction in paper and ink cartridges.
Manor Day Nurseries
Simon Capper
Manor Day Nurseries

We felt like we were just a small fish to the large corporate firm we were with, so we started to look around for an alternative and came upon Nursery in a Box. Our initial conversations with founders Dave and Milesh made us feel confident in moving to their system and we’ve not looked back.
Busy Little Bees Nurseries
Jackie Davis
Busy Little Bees

Across three settings, we probably had a monthly ink and paper bill of around £150 to £200 per site. With Nursery in a Box, that cost was gone overnight as everything is contained within the new software.
Little Learners Day Care
Elaine Burnett
Little Learners

I got in contact and spoke with the founder Dave Elebert, and after the initial conversation plus a trial I decided it was the way to go. We’ve not looked back. Nursery in a Box is user friendly, makes sense and most importantly I can speak to the team there.
Tynemouth Nursery Group
Rob Kilby
Tynemouth Nursery Group

Nursery in a Box ticks all the boxes for us. Everyone in the team uses it in some way and the parents do too. If I was to put a figure on it – I would say it saves us the equivalent of 2 or 3 admin salaries across the group. It lets our staff get on with what they love – caring for the children. Nursery in a Box most definitely pays for itself.

Great company always happy to help with any question and always updating the program to make it better, our parents love the online diary’s and pictures we send daily.
