ParentZone is a smartphone app for parents that we use here at First Steps Nursery to keep you up to date. You’ll get instant updates about your child’s activities and achievements, sent straight to your phone, so you’ll never miss an important moment again.
From your app you can see how your child is developing by viewing their observations and assessments as soon as they are published. You can see a list of communications that we’ve sent out, like newsletters and notices, and you can even view and pay your nursery fees from your phone.
