How it all started
In the summer of 2013, in a park in Bearsden just outside of Glasgow, Nikki Th’ng, an ex-tennis coach, listened to a familiar tale about how difficult it was to find and book kids classes and decided that there must be a better way. As a parent and a coach he realised that both sides were frustrated with the process but they didn’t have any alternative.
In the following year, Nikki sold his business and assembled a team of coaches, parents, designers and web developers to build a dedicated system for managing, finding and bookings kids classes.
Solving problems for coaches
Class4Kids is the bridge between the old, difficult ways of running and booking kids classes and the new technology that makes everyone’s life so much easier. It has been built from a club perspective to help coaches and teachers run their classes easily and take full advantage of the internet.
Solving problems for parents
It also solves the two big problems that parents face:
- What classes are on for my children?
- How can I book them?
For the first time, parents can find local classes that suit their children and schedule as quickly as they can search on Google. Once they find the perfect class they can book it in minutes from the comfort of their own home. In fact, they can do it wherever they like because Class4Kids works just as well on phones and tablets!
We are a small but experienced team at the start of a long journey and we are working very hard to make sure that coaches and teachers can solve all of their admin problems and fill up their classes while parents can easily find and book kids classes in their area. We’ve made a great start and with the continued support of all the great kids clubs and parents all over the UK, we can create something wonderful for everyone!
