My order was delivered within a week of ordering very impressed

Thank you so much Trudi! We hope you have a wonderful year of simplified documentation ahead!


I was going to get another family day care diary but an educator who bought it wasn’t happy another educator told me about the butler and he was very happy. I now am very happy that i received it. I provide food so I use the menu as a sleep check boxes for 15/30/45/60 min it’s good to have it all together.
Thankyou i’m very happy 👍🏻👍🏻
