KidsLink marks the end of its first preschool registration season; announces team
PR Log - Apr 03, 2013 - Today, KidsLink officially concluded its first season as the choice provider of preschool registration and data exchange services.
With KidsLink’s service, youth organizations can administer both their entire application process and their ongoing management of forms throughout the year. KidsLink allows administrators to manage by exception, focusing efforts on registrants that may need assistance.
From a parent’s perspective, “This also serves as a sea-change for the future of family document management, the ‘beginning of the end’ for obsolete paper-based registration,” noted KidsLink CEO Chris Morocco.
According to Peachtree Presbyterian Preschool Communications Director Beth Copeland, “We have been searching for a way to consolidate and simplify the admission process and eliminate paperwork for both the parents and the Preschool. KidsLink provides the tool to efficiently coordinate registration and student record forms.
“Parents have been enthusiastic about the new online registration, and the support we’ve received from KidsLink has made the conversion seamless. After the success of our registration process, we’re really looking forward to having KidsLink help us with our data management throughout the school year.”
Stated KidsLink’s co-founder Scott Powers, “Peachtree Presbyterian Preschool has been a perfect partner for us. We’ve learned so much from them and look forward to continue helping their staff and parents throughout their school year.”
Looking to the future, CEO Morocco said, “In the coming years, moms and dads will never again have to juggle hundreds of paper forms and documents just to manage their kids’ lives. Instead, it’ll all be contained in one app on their computers or mobile phones.”
