For NurseriesRequest a demo

As a nursery, your priority is the care of your young children.  What’s more, your parents are busy, and on the go.  With quick drop-offs and pick-ups at the start and end of the day, this leaves little time to update them about news/events/information.

If you don’t have the time or resource to create your own website, your nursery’s own, personalised app is the quick and easy point of reference for your current and prospective parents!  

Features of OurSchoolsApp:

  • All your information in one place – one point of reference for busy parents
  • Easy to Update and Amend  – use your own logo and nursery colours
  • Push Notifications for News – messages straight to your parents’ smart phones
  • Secure – Authorised log in for updates
  • Save ££ on printing letters – which often are misplaced anyway
  • Initial App set-up as an option
  • FREE for Parents to download (from Apple App Store or Google Play Store)

 

Why have an App for your nursery:

  • Instant updates to parents during the working day
  • Engage ALL family – so those parents/carers who don’t drop off/pick up can also be actively involved
  • Share photos of fun activities/visitors to nursery – guaranteed to make a parent smile at work!
  • Send reminders for stay-and-play sessions, wellies on wet days etc.
  • 7 in 10 adults use apps, and apps account for 89% of mobile time – it’s how parents want to get information!
  • Keep ahead of the competition from the nursery down the road which doesn’t have an app – it could be the deciding factor in parents choosing you, ahead of them!

 

Payments:

With little ones around your feet, you don’t have time spend on the administration of collecting cash payments or chasing missed payments.  Let our Call Parents Payments system take care of all your nursery fees for you.  It’s all done electronically and seamlessly.

 

Payments which sits within our Call Parents platform, is a school online payments collection system – guaranteed to save your school hours of administrative time, helping you move to a cashless environment.

Send requests for, and collect payments from parents for trips, school events and fundraisers, uniform, breakfast and after school clubs and more. With the ability to target specific class/year group parents, there’s no need to send letters asking for money, and no need for office staff to chase outstanding payments.

Easier for School – Easier for Parents

Less cash on site… Fewer trips to the bank!

  

Payments Product features:

  • Parents receive a receipt for every payment
  • Issue refunds – hassle-free! (e.g. a child can no longer attend a trip)
  • Customise payment requests (by class or year groups)
  • Detailed reporting, statistics and  analytics – see what has been paid, and what is outstanding – by parent, class, or year group.
  • Unlimited technical support
  • Multiple  bank  accounts  can  be  nominated  to  pay  money  into (e.g. if  you  have payments   going  to  your  LA  as  well  as  your  school).

OurSchoolsApp (OSA) is a free app for your parents, which keeps them updated with information, news, calendar events and contact information.

OSA allows your parents to get timely updates from their child’s school – direct to their phone.  Given that the average user picks up their smart phone 221 times a day, and 61% of UK adults have a smartphone, communicating with parents on their phone is by far the most effective.  Anything else is old school!

OurSchoolsApp features:

  • All your links in one place – one point of reference for parents
  • Easy to Update and Amend  – use your own logo and school badge/colours
  • Integrated calendar – remind parents of school events 24 hours, and one hour before each event
  • FREE Push Notifications for News – ideal for last minute reminders, cancelled clubs etc.
  • Secure – Authorised log in or updates    
  • Initial App set-up as an option 
  • FREE for Parents to download (from Apple App Store or Google Play Store) 

 

Many schools all over the UK already have OurSchoolsApp.  Given that 7 in 10 adults say they use apps, and apps account for 89% of mobile media time, an App for your parents is the way forward.
