Getting Ready for the New Academic Year: Enrolment and Paperwork

Next up in our blog series, “Preparing for the New Academic Year,” we are taking a look at the ongoing tasks of enrolment and paperwork. This article will explore effective strategies to maximise enrolment in your childcare setting while minimising the additional burden of paperwork that may come with it. Discover how nursery management software, such as our award-winning app iConnect, can dramatically transform your administrative processes, saving you time and effort as you welcome new children and families to your nursery setting, whilst saying goodbye to those beginning their school journey. Join us as we outline how to streamline your enrolment process and make the start of the new term smoother and more efficient.

Early years enquiries and onboarding made easy

We have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to shout about the latest addition to iConnect software! Specifically designed to enhance your nursery’s processes, this module will change the way early years settings handle everything from initial enquiries to successful onboarding and enrolment.

This module brings significant efficiencies to managing parent queries and onboarding processes, empowering nurseries and practitioners to deliver a seamless and straightforward experience to both families and staff members. Here’s a closer look at the key benefits:

Online parent enquiry form:

Initiate the registration journey with ease using our Parent Enquiry Form. Parents can start the process online by completing a web form accessible via a customisable URL. The flexibility to display the link wherever needed enhances accessibility, convenience, and engagement, ultimately contributing to a smoother and more efficient enrolment process for both parents and the nursery.

This form feeds directly into iConnect’s Enquiries module, eliminating the need for manual data entry and reducing the risk of losing important information. With all enquiries stored in one easily accessible place, you’ll never miss an opportunity to connect with prospective parents.

Add enquiries manually:

Handling enquiries over the phone is now effortless with our manual entry option. Staff can quickly input enquiries into iConnect, maintaining consistency and efficiency. This feature allows you to capture essential information easily, improving accuracy and saving time, while enhancing the overall parent experience.

Manage ongoing enquiries:

Keep track of every enquiry with a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface. From initial contact to enrolment, you can effortlessly monitor and manage each step, ensuring a smooth workflow and timely follow-ups. This enhanced visibility and flexibility mean no enquiry will slip through the cracks, leading to improved productivity and parent satisfaction.
