How to ace your family tours

Family tours are a big deal. Some children and their families might feel excited about starting in an early learning environment, whereas others may feel a bit nervous. As we often say to children these days, they might be having “big feelings” about the transition.

It’s important to create an environment that is comfortable yet packs a real ‘WOW’ factor for whoever walks through your front doors.

Here are our top tips on how to make your tours memorable, and a way to make new families feel like part of your family…

  • Statement furniture 

While looks aren’t everything, they certainly help when it comes to first impressions. Custom designed furniture is a great way to appeal to families and be a conversation starter. Whether it’s play equipment, tables, chairs or even storage units, a statement piece in each area helps you stand out from the rest.

  • Standout décor

Standout décor can hold just as much value as statement furniture. Whether it’s a bright rug, cushions or perhaps indoor plants children can be in charge of watering, going the extra mile with décor is a sure-fire way to stand out from the crowd.

  • Play set-up

While appearance is important, you also want to give families a taste of what to expect activities-wise. After all, children don’t necessarily want to spend all day staring at furniture and décor. Set up a simple activity for children to participate in. This could be as simple as a water play activity using a large tray and some small parts, or you might want to lay out a variety of open-ended resources to encourage building or even role play. Whatever you choose, make it authentic, engaging and in line with your pedagogy.

No matter what you choose, your family tour will be a success if you think outside of the box and get to the core of what’s authentic and what appeals to families.
