What Educators are saying

“As an app I find AcornCloud very good and user friendly. I have experience with some of the other apps on the market and so far I have found AcornCloud has more features on it for staff to make the recording of day to day activities a lot easier. One of them being the sleep checks.”

We have been using AcornCloud in our finance department for the last year and it has been a game changer! Our previous manual billing system was time-consuming and error-prone. Issuing invoices and uploading payments with AcornCloud has never been so easy. This saved us a lot of time, not only in terms of finances, but also in terms of communication with parents. Parents can check billing portal themselves and see their current balances and statements. The biggest advantage, I’ve found with AcornCloud, is the ability to prepare term fees for holiday periods in advance, taking into account any changes in funding. We have found it to be an excellent app and can’t recommend it enough.

“Our setting started using Acorncloud in December 2023. AcornCloud is a fantastic app that keeps parents up to date throughout the day about their Child’s daily routines. It is fast and reliable and very easy to use. I have used many different apps and AcornCloud is definitely the best. It is fantastic for uploading activities for the Children and also very fast and efficient for sleep checks.”

AcornCloud has been so easy to use at first I was nervous as I was so use to paper work but AcornCloud is so easy to get around, the parents really like the fact that they can log on anytime of the day and check how their child is and see pictures and videos etc.. It has allowed staff more time for interaction with the children and carrying out activities as everything is done through AcornCloud.”

I’m working in the Accounts department, and we moved from manual accounting to AcornCloud almost a year ago. I would be comfortable to say it changed our lives. Weekly accounts are being run with only few clicks, Parents can see all the financial information on their billing (invoices issued, payments received, any adjustments or credits applied to the account). I highly recommend AcornCloud software for Early Years Services as it is significantly reducing workload and instead, we can focus on improving quality of our service.

AcornCloud has been a great addition to our Crèche. It has allowed Parents to become more involved as they can see live updates of how their Child’s day is going. It has made paperwork a lot quicker and easier to fill out, allowing Staff to spend more time planning activities.
