Who is CoB designed for?

The Childcare on-line Booking (CoB) system is a bespoke booking, payment and management software solution for schools, nurseries, preschools, out of school clubs (including breakfast clubs, after school clubs, holiday clubs and play schemes) and sports clubs that has been designed with both clubs and parents in mind. Ayrmer Software, the software and web development studio behind CoB have been developing software solutions since 2002, when the business was initially founded by Charlie Collins, our Managing Director.

Charlie initially developed the original bespoke solution for Fun in School Holidays (FiSH) back in 2011. He is passionate about delivering a solution that works for nurseries, pre-schools, primary schools, academies, Multiple Academy Trusts (MAT), sports clubs and holiday camps alike and is focused on building a reputation for excellence that aligns with the core businesses reputation. He is also passionate about ensuring that CoB is secure against the increased cyber threats and maintains the software firewall that protects all of our systems.

CoB is used by an ever growing group of privately owned businesses, primary schools and academies across the United Kingdom that represent a cross section of childcare providers, both in terms of size and business models. We work with businesses that have over 50 settings across the country, right down to micro businesses that run clubs at single settings providing childcare for ten children.
