Parent engagement is key to childcare success.

With better access to technology and online marketplaces, parents are more discerning than ever. In addition to having great facilities, your centre will need to stand out from the crowd to succeed in this highly-competitive digital landscape. You can turn enquiries into enrolments by engaging with families, and building a relationship of trust and transparency.

In this guide, we introduce you to some best practices for getting more leads, such as:

  • Actively listening to parents and their unique needs
  • Using and promoting the right communication channels 
  • Focusing on quality areas and national ratings 
  • Designing tours that convince parents of service quality

Online marketplaces can promote your service. 

Dedicated listings are a powerful ally for your centre’s parent engagement strategy. 

Also known as parent enquiry platforms, marketplaces expand visibility by: 

  • Improving the childcare search experience for parents
  • Automating marketing and administration
  • Providing easy access to online tour bookings

Adriana – Broadmeadows ELC

“Space is excellent. We have already had 20 enquiries this week. I am relieved that I don’t have to try and find notes of where I wrote down an enquiry, I can easily access everything from Space.”

Michelle – Gaia’s Nest

“Space is incredibly user-friendly and looks really nice. I love the filters and the easy sorting through enquiries to find the appropriate room.”

Alex – Mawson Lakes Park Way Childcare

Space has made it easier for parents to making tour bookings because they can do it directly to my centre and it prevents miscommunication from using a spreadsheet or a diary.”
