Reduce admin work
By creating an online booking system for your out of school hours care, you will provide a great experience to parents making bookings and save considerable admin time. Avoid the tedious time spent taking bookings on the phone, managing spreadsheets and chasing up payments.
On average, before and after school care services who use Pembee receive around 100 bookings in a week. Responding to an email or phone call to confirm a booking can easily take 5 minutes each, equivalent to 8.3 hours of admin work. Just think how you could spend that extra day you've freed up in your schedule each week!
Allowing parents to book 24/7 will increase their satisfaction and make them more likely to book again. Using an online booking system, parents can book children's wraparound care on their phone, tablet or computer. All they need to do is to select the sessions they wish to book their child in to, fill in or update their kids' details, and make payment. They'll receive a confirmation email with the details of their booking and can view all the sessions they've booked in their account area.
The best Out of School Hours Care management software
Pembee allows you to create a site to take bookings for your before and after school care sessions. The initial setup is straightforward and shouldn't stress you out too much!
Create your before and after school care listing page in minutes
The booking pages for your before and after school care sessions can include pictures, downloadable documents and have content divided up into separate sections. Place limits for each session can be set to ensure they don't get overbooked.
Different tickets can be created, allowing you to sell before and after school care sessions individually or for an entire school term. You can also pro rata the tickets for the remaining sessions in the term period.
Upsell with add-ons, discounts, and session passes
More sales can be encouraged by creating discount rules that automatically apply a reduced price when a parent books multiple before and after school care sessions. You can also create 'sibling saver' discounts where a parent receives a discount on each additional child they book.
Discount codes can be set up to offer a fixed amount or percentage discount to a booking. If there's a child who has not attended for a while, this can be a great way to entice them back. You can also create discount codes with a limited date validity to encourage early bookings.
You can create optional add-on items for parents to purchase alongside any tickets, such late pickup fee or an additional charge for refreshments.
You can also sell session passes where a parent can pay for a number of class credits up front and use them as they make bookings for the before and after school care sessions.
Collect customisable attendee information at checkout
You can collect customisable information from parents at checkout, such as the child's name, date of birth, school class and medical information. This information is then used to create a profile for the child, which is then used to create a booking. This is saved in the out of school hours care management software for future use, so there's no need for parents to re-enter this information each time they book.
Handle payments with ease
We integrate with a payment solution company called Stripe to enable you to take online payments by credit or debit card. They already provide this service to over 3 million websites so your parents should feel confident when paying online. There are also options to set up subscription payments or payment plans, to enhance your offering depending on parents' needs.
Powerful admin tools to organise your before and after school care
Automatic email confirmation: After completing a booking, parents will receive a confirmation email that includes details of the before and after school care sessions they've booked and any offline payment instructions (such as your bank details). You can customise this email template to include extra information such as anything they should bring to the first class. Parents will also be able to access the history of all bookings placed in the account area of the site.
Manage and create bookings as an administrators: As abefore and after school care manager, you can access the admin area to view and manage all bookings that have been placed by parents, easily filter out any bookings with outstanding payments. For parents who prefer to call you to place a booking, you can book them in yourself and send them a confirmation email with all the booking details. For a secure and easy collection of funds you can send the parent a link to a payment page where they can pay by credit or debit card. This avoids taking card details over the phone.
Easily configure and share session registers: You can view a register for each session and customise the information shown on the register. To share the register, you can download it as a CSV or PDF document, or create staff member accounts so that they can access session registers. You can also restrict these accounts from viewing financial information or performing other administrative actions.
One-click notification email: It's also possible to email all parents who have booked a session with one click. This can be useful to send reminders or to update parents with any information.
Analyse business performance: You can make use of the reports function to track how many registrations there's been for each of your before and after school care sessions, along with the revenue data. This allows you to easily identify the most popular activities and demand across different times.
