What our clients say

The challenge

During the lockdown period, the team at Christopher Robin Day Nurseries were busy planning how they could successfully reopen their schools while adhering to social distancing measures. The team was especially concerned about the drop off and pickup process at its schools, which is often a very personal, high-contact process, where parents are able to interact with teachers and other parents.

The solution

When its schools reopened on June 8, the education provider starting using Qudini’s queuing app to create a digital drop off and pickup process for parents, supporting social distancing measures by reducing the amount of time parents spend at its locations and creating a streamlined drop off and pickup process.

Instead of asking parents and children to wait in queues outside the nurseries, they are now able to wait from the comfort and safety of their own cars. Teachers, who are very familiar with students and their parents/caregivers, oversee the process while abiding by social distancing measures.

  • How the drop off and pickup journey work:

    • Parents arrive outside nursery with children.
    • Parents check-in through their phones and receive a queue position and an estimated wait time.
    • Staff are alerted when parents arrive and can manage the process fairly.

    • Parents receive real-time notifications alerting them when to take children into the nursery.
    • Staff check children into the nursery.
    • The same process applies when parents arrive to pickup their children at the end of the day.

That, in turn, has improved their customer service levels, reduced waiting times and added to the general ambience of being organised.
