Group Text Messaging service


Recommended Posts

Does anyone use a company to send out group text messages to parents regarding information about the setting? Hoping to send out text alerts to inform of newsletters now on website, reminders, emergency closure days, bank hols etc.

Any companies you would recommend? Thoughts

I looked into it but was quite expensive for the amount we would use it. I now have email addresses for all parents and send group emails only takes seconds and costs nothing. Lots of parents have emails set up to their phones so is similar.

we had a work mobile phone and had all parents on it as contacts.. made it easier to call in an emergency as the number was always easy to find plus that allowed us to send text messages to many recipients at the same time... so could send it to all parents or just those we were targeting..

We have a closed face book page for things like that. Most people are on face book now. Texting is a good idea but you need to weigh up the benefits to the cost.

Any thing to make sure messages get to parents is a plus.

We had an inset today but still one child turned up.
