Improve your early years practice
Every week, we'll send you expert early years insights, resources, tips and inspiration straight to your inbox
When parents start to look for nursery places, their first impressions of you will make all the difference. If you have a pile of Post-it notes with enquiries on, strewn across your desk, not only are you like to lose them, but the potential customers too.
This spreadsheet is an easy way to keep an overview of all your nursery or early years enquiries, keep track of parental contact information, and note down at what stage of your process they're at.
The outcome? You'll keep on top of communication, get more children in your setting and fewer interested parents falling through the cracks.
Now you're ready to go!
To really get the most out of the spreadsheet, and fill every nursery place, use it to track your application process right from the first contact:
Want to take this to the next level? With Famly, enquiry management is truly simple.
You can build a customised registration form for your website, so parents can easily apply online. The child information is uploaded immediately, and you can manage the enquiry status in seconds - even filtering based on whatever you want.
Even better, you can see whether a child on your waiting list matches your current availability, and import their information straight into Famly, as soon as they're ready to start. You can get your free demo today.
Keen to check out more smart tools to handle enquiries? Use this spreadsheet together with our Marketing Investment Calculator to get an even better overview of the enquiries, understand your marketing spend, and see how many more enquiries you need to fill up your empty places.
Please note: here at Famly we love sharing creative activities for you to try with the children at your setting, but you know them best. Take the time to consider adaptions you might need to make so these activities are accessible and developmentally appropriate for the children you work with. Just as you ordinarily would, conduct risk assessments for your children and your setting before undertaking new activities, and ensure you and your staff are following your own health and safety guidelines.
