Industry awards celebrate Connect Childcare’s creations

Just six months after launching an innovative new app, Burnley nursery management software provider Connect Childcare has won a prestigious industry award.

Connect Childcare, which specialises in creating nursery management software to ease the administrative burden on nursery staff whilst helping them to improve their partnership with parents, were named winners in the Staff Resources category at the Nursery World Awards.

The team were presented with the award at the Brewery in London after they impressed judges with their ParentZone and iConnect software.

ParentZone is an app which uses the latest smartphone and tablet technologies to enable parents to interact with nursery staff and view their children’s achievements and activities in a Facebook style timeline at any time of day or night and wherever they are. The app integrates with the company’s iConnect software which allows nursery staff to easily complete all of their administrative tasks and record keeping in one place.

“We are delighted that our contribution to innovation in the childcare sector was been recognised by the judges, particularly in a record breaking year for entries,” said Connect Childcare CEO Chris Reid.

“ParentZone and iConnect really do have the potential to revolutionise the nursery industry, saving staff valuable time and bringing them closer to the parents of the children in their care. We are looking forward to continuing to develop these technologies to help nurseries operate even more efficiently. “In addition to our own success at the awards ceremony, we were delighted that a number of our satisfied iConnect and ParentZone customers also received recognition including Kiddi Caru, The Co-operative Childcare and Toad Hall.”
