Getting started with ClassForKids
When you sign-up you’ll be taken through a quick tutorial of how to use the basic features, next up you’ll create your schedule and customise your settings.
Nope, no contract! So long as you're paying the small monthly fee you can use the system. Stop paying anytime and stop using the system. Simple.
Well... we have one client who started using ClassForKids while they were running 1 franchise. Just over two years later she now has 15 franchises, all using the system as standard.
Like a dream. As well as independent clubs of all sizes, we work with some of the largest franchises in the UK to provide a stable and scalable platform for all of their businesses. We've even been known to build specific features just for them (and then rolled them out to our other customers). Read more about franchises here.
Of course, most clubs usually keep their registers and booking to 12 weeks long to make it easier to manage your attendance and holidays, but our re-run feature means it only takes a few minutes every few months to set-up your next batch of dates.
We do support one-off events, and you can even have a unique booking link for each part.
We’ve got lots of helpful help guides that will help you manoeuvre our features, and you can access the team through our in-app messenger straight from your system. We’re here to help you all the way through your ClassForKids journey. Get in touch now.
You can also request video guide before you decide to start using the system!
Transitioning your existing parents to ClassForKids
It’s really simple for parents to book and pay with ClassForKids, many will already have an account with their details saved, if not it only takes a couple of minutes. We’ve got lots of templates to help you to explain to your parents the change and what they need to do. Read more about parents' testimonials here.
It's probably easier than you think to setup your first register and begin inviting customers to book online. Why not signup a free-trial system and see for yourself. If you're a bit less confident our Product Coaches can work closely with you to get your full register onto the system and ready to run in plenty of time for your next term. We've managed to help very large clubs setup over a weekend!
Well, you certainly won't have as much admin to do... our software has been designed and developed (with love) since 2013 to meet the needs of thousands of businesses just like yours. That said, we do still uncover the odd anomaly, and whilst we are always improving our system, we usually find customers are happier to adopt our suggested best practice than to find a workaround.
Yes, your booking link is a custom URL that you can build behind a Book Now button or fit as an iFrame into your website. If you need help, get in touch.
