St Mary's Nursery School uses Famly, a nursery management app. This helps us to manage the setting more easily, and allows parents and carers to be more involved in their children's day.

Famly lets the nursery keep in close contact with you as a parent, and vice versa. The app is free of charge to parents/carers and gives you the opportunity to communicate with the nursery at any time.

The app also offers you practical functions to help you communicate with the nursery. These include:

  • Reporting sick days and holidays to the nursery with one click.

  • Receiving and sending private messages safely.

  • Getting an overview of all events in your private calendar.

  • Seeing photos and videos of your child's day in the newsfeed.

  • Viewing your child’s online Learning Journal.

  • Receiving information about toilet training/nappy changes/food consumption.

  • Getting status updates and receiving important reminders.

  • Communicating with other parents.

You can view an introduction to the Famly experience here.

how does it work?

When you register with the nursery, you will receive a login invitation to your child's profile by email. You can edit your child's information yourself and control all information.

You can use Famly anywhere across all devices free of charge. The app runs on computers, tablets and smartphones (Android and iPhone).
