Discover Why Others Have Upgraded!

Some Honest Opinions

Counties Manukau Kindergarten Association

Our Association has been using Discover Childcare software for 2 months now. We are very impressed with the software so far. The Discover team were great with the change-over of data from our previous SMS. The Discover support team are very helpful and very quick to respond. It is a very easy system to use and the Help videos and documents are a great way to get you started. The end of month reporting is great and easy to use. There are also many other useful reports we didn’t have access to before. We like the way you can drill into dates, staff and children’s records to investigate issues.

The Administrators in our kindergartens are enjoying working with the new software. We still have more to explore and implement but so far we are very pleased with what we have been able to do. Would definitely recommend the switch to Discover - Counties Manukau Kindergarten Association
