We visited a happy customer and spoke to the Director and some Educators about their experience using our diaries.


"I had always struggled with programming and reflection documentation. I’ve tried multiple methods including apps and mind-maps, but never had any consistent or easy workflow with them. I decided to try the Butler Diary for Weekly Programming and Reflection after seeing amazing examples online. I have been using the diary for a while now and have never looked back. Documentation is quick and easy and was perfect for our A&R visit."
Belinda, Early Childhood Educator
