Running an after school program or enrichment programs is tough. Don’t make it harder than it has to be!
With smart technology and techniques, you can transform the way you run your programs.
Quit worrying about all the nitty-gritty bits of organization, and get back to having fun with your kids!
Work smarter, not harder
Any good business owner knows that quality communication is key to keeping a tight ship.
Maintaining clear and open conversations with parents is important for giving them peace of mind and making sure everyone is on the same page.
The problem is, though, it’s just so easy to get bogged down in the details. You’ve got a lot of parents to keep track of, and they all need to feel assured that you care about them as individuals.
One way this can help you improve your business is by allowing you to set up triggered emails for parents, so they can always rest assured you’re on top of your game.
You can also quickly filter out the parents you want to speak with at any given time, along with keeping everybody up-to-date about the things they need to know.
Tech can also help with the not-so-fun parts of clear communication, too.
Autobilling systems, for example, can streamline the payment process–giving your parents the ability to both pay online now and set up exactly when and what they want to pay in the future.
We all know how much millennial parents use their phones. Work with the system, not against it! With the right software, it’s simple to stay at the cutting edge of payment technology.
Your parents won’t have to think twice, and neither will you. Remember, tech can keep you informed, too. There are a lot of expenses that go into running an after school service, and while software can’t make your money for you, it can keep you on the ball when it comes to managing payments and billing.
Know your kids—and your parents, too
People are unique. If you’ve been working with children, that’s something you probably know intuitively.
Every parent knows their child is unlike any other child in the world, and they want to be sure that you know that, too.
The thing is, though, you’re also human—and sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the details when you’re trying to work out how take care of a group.
Technology to the rescue! With the help of specialized filter tools, you’ll never have to worry about whether you have all the facts straight.
Is it snack time? Filter out the kids with allergies. Need to know if some kids have special circumstances—or how many of their parents have paid this month? Filter, filter, filter!
You shouldn’t have to sift through mountains of paperwork every time you want to find some information.
With just a few clicks, you can sort your kids by their age, their gender, or just about any other category you could imagine.
Better manage your time
Tech helps us deal with the things we’d rather not have to think about.
We know you care about your work. We know you care about your children. Use your time figuring out how to best suit their needs—not the needs of your filing system.
Spend your life doing what you love. Use smart technology, and get your programs organized today!
