Here’s A School Management System that Both Teachers and Parents Will Love
A school management software that goes beyond just an ‘ERP’ and engages parents meaningfully is a must for every educational institution. With the preschool market facing fierce competition, how confident are you that the school management system you are using serves your purpose, the teachers and the kids in the best way possible?
Rapid economic growth is bringing more and more parents into the workforce. While this dual income opportunity is viewed as beneficial for men and women alike, the situation has caused a surge in the demand for preschool/daycare centers, services and other childcare facilities all over the globe. Read some example stats here. Different research studies support the following major causes for such a phenomenal rise in demand, specifically in emerging economies such as India: the consistent growth of nuclear families through the years, improved income and modes of living, policies supporting the entry, growth and development of women in the workforce, an increase of awareness on the part of the parents for the effect of quality preschool education in the overall development of a child.
One of the key evidence that the preschool market in India is rising aggressively is the entry of multiple foreign players in India’s preschool industry. They are poised and ready to give service to its 164 million children in competition to the existing local public and private schools. These schools offer diversified curriculum such as Multiple Intelligence, iLLUME, Montessori, and Play way, to name a few.
It is evident that the competition on business owners in the preschool industry is indeed toe to toe and will become even more fierce. With all this dynamicity in view, many business owners and entrepreneurs offering educational services in India often ask this important question:
“What more can we do to provide better services to our clients and thereby enable us to move/stay ahead of the competition?”
Now more than ever, an early childhood center’s client (a.k.a the parent) is in control of their spending. There are just so many options available for them to choose from today that whosoever they think understands their needs the most, offers the best care, and has the best services almost always are given their money.
And so, going back to the question above: “what more can we, as an early childhood center, do to provide better services to our clients and thereby enabling ourselves to move ahead of the competition?”
The answer to this question is:
“Leverage technology to transform your school operations to enhance learning, development, safety and meaningful engagement”
Preschool and daycare owners must bear in mind that today’s parents are tech-savvy and want to be meaningfully engaged in their child’s day at school. Preschool owners must also realize that a school’s effort in including parents as part of their child’s learning is a big plus to their business’s reputation and value. An HSBC Global Education Report states that India holds the highest percentage (96%) of parents who have paid private tutor or tuition on private schools for at least 1 child. This is a staggering number and a testament to how committed parents in the country are towards ensuring that their children receive a quality education and care.
Now, just imagine, what if you as a school, can empower your parents to be not only more aware of their child but be equipped with the tools and knowledge to contribute to their child’s growth and learning?
Shouldn’t your services endear you to your parents more? And wouldn’t it give the parents more chance to be proactively and meaningfully engagedin the learning and development of their child, just the way they want it to be?
