Get Your Nursery To Stand Out With A Custom Parental Communication App From Parentapps

Parentapps Connect is a communication platform that includes an app for parents and a management system for nurseries. It is the perfect solution for any nursery looking to improve parental engagement. Not only are our parental communication apps affordable and easy to use, but they are also well-loved by parents and provide a great selling point for any nursery.

Most nurseries today have a website but how many parents actually use it? It is a necessity that all nurseries communicate quickly and effectively with parents which can be time consuming and expensive.

Nurseries are currently using various means of communication such as text messaging, email and newsletters but they all have a cost and the information that is sent can be limited. If you consider the costs of text messaging and printing costs alone it can run into the thousands.

An App Will Improve Communication

An app for a nursery has many benefits in that not only does it provide key information that parents can access very quickly but it can also be used as a method of communication to all of the parents associated with the nursery. Parentapps have successfully built apps for a number of nurseries and all have been a great success.

Most if not all parents now own a smartphone that is with them most of the time. If you look at all of the time, money and resources it takes to communicate with parents then what could possibly be better than reaching them directly on their mobile phone? 

How Parentapps Connect can benefit your nursery

How much money and time do you spend printing, distributing and following up on all your parental communication? Parentapps Connect is an affordable and easy to use solution that was built to reduce the time and money spent on parental communication whilst improving parental engagement.

 Not only do nurseries save money with Parentapps Connect, but they also are able to keep their parents fully up to date with everything that is going on within the nursery. And, by communicating through the Parentapps Connect App, you can also find out who has read your messages, eliminating the need to send whole nursery reminders when you only need to reach a select few.

Additionally, using an app for communicating with parents also enables nurseries to reduce paper, ink, and wastage which helps to make nurseries greener and more sustainable. This gives you an opportunity to set an example in your community and help contribute to efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.
