MMG Education’s Prospective Parent review is a core component of the Enrolment Best Practice review. It provides a comprehensive review of the perceptions, engagement and views of your school from the point of view of a prospective parent.
Prospective parents are critical for schools as a source of enrolments. Typically, a prospective parent will apply to three schools before they make their final decision about where to send their child.
Why engage in a Prospective Parent review?
The main purpose of the Prospective Parent review is to provide your school with the views relating to their perceptions of the school, current relationship, contact management, enrolment processes and comparisons to other schools on key areas.
The Prospective Parent review provides important research based data enabling your school to assess the strength of its prospective parent listings and satisfaction with the school’s engagement processes.
