I wanna be an astronaut!
They grow up so quick, don't they? Our two year old, wants to dress up like an astronaut. She would get her white hoodie out, and put a woolen hat, and declare to everyone - I am an astronaut! We all know school is important, but what they do outside of school is also important. They learn hobbies, pick up new interests, learn new life skills and make new friends from where they go. Having a friend share an activity that you love, just makes it so much more enjoyable. We connect families with the after school centers, through our Family App. We let families connect with each other that share interests. Our Twishr for Business allows their businesses to run efficiently. Our mission is to enable all children realize their potential, get the best out of the activities they do, and love what they do. Our mission is to enable families with all the tools to get the most out of their after school activity experience that children go to. Our mission is to enable activity centers with all the tools to make the most of their service to the community. We know it takes a village to raise a child, and we bring the village together. Twishr is built for all those children, and children of all ages, who want to reach for the stars. Reach for the stars, little ones! Download the Twishr App from the Android Play Store or ask your children's activity provider to get onboarded with https://www.twishr.com. If you have any questions, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
COVID-19 and Day Camps
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed things so much this year, and it just feels like the world has hit the pause button. The fact that everyone is instructed to stay home and schools being closed can be challenging to comprehend, especially to younger children. They cannot go out to play, cannot see their friends physically, and are restricted to their homes. They are missing out on school time and the social interaction. This situation
How we select activity centers is broken
We have all been doing it the same way for years. When we want to get some feedback, we dont know better than to trust random strangers on restaurant rating services. Why continue to do it the same way still?
Celebrating the ups and downs of parenting
Being a parent is hard, really hard. But there is no reason to not grab a few laughs at the antics of what other kids do, and relate to that?
We stand with families, we stand against discrimination
These are difficult times, and times of change. We are living in a moment of history. Nothing that this generation has done so far will have so much far reaching consequences as what we are going through now. We stand by families, we want children to reach their potential, without discrimination or fear of retribution of any sort. We stand by people wanting to live their passion, through the art and talents that have been gifted to them and hone them to perfection and make the world a better place. If all the little ones out there, if you wanna be an astronaut, and together will make it happen. As parents, adults, educators, all members of the community - we owe it to them!
Make time for yourself
Our children deserve a lot of our attention. And lets admit, we as parents try and give them all the attention and then some. Between school, snack, after school, dinner and homework where do we as parents fit time for ourselves? Parenting was never easy. From the early morning breakfast, packing lunch. The only time we get for ourselves is really when the kids are out at Activity Centers or outdoors playing. If you've been going into a soccer practice. W Why does chess class for your children have to suck? If you dont have to be there, why not grab some me time at the salon or grab something fun to do while your kids are enjoying themselves? Dimsome lets you share your calendar with your best friends, any part of the city, so you can hang out when your children are at play
Summer Day Camps in 2020
Open, with Caution Depending on what county you are in, you may have permission to open your Activity Center, with caution. As if running a busy summer day camp season wasn't enough, you now also have to learn crowd control social distancing, and manage your business at the same time. Here are some ideas on how you can make the best of this weird season. Crowd Control If you had drop in classes before, they may no longer be .drop ins anymore. Please request your parents, to select slots of time when they can drop their children off. Social Distancing Regardless of the county or state, social distancing is the new normal. A number of day cares and activity centers are doing just that, by drawing grids or circles on the ground within children are asked to stay. It may be difficult for children to understand and abide by those rules, however, as the designated responsible adults in the room, you would want to continue with frequent hand washing, and hand sanitizers and use masks when they are in close proximity to each other. Online Summer Day Camps Build in an online component. You need to get creative with keeping kids engaged though, but once you've mastered it, you're golden! Look at the bright side, your customers are no longer restricted to your zip code. Alice could join from 300 miles away because their cousin Mike attends this Art School Be Flexible A large number of working parents have been furloughed, or laid off. However, their child care needs haven't diminished. Feel free to throw in promotions as you feel.

How Twishr makes it better?
Running an activity center is no child's play. You converted your passion for dance and made that into a living. But now, running your studio has become a chore, because you end up spending a disproportionate amount of time running the software, record keeping and sending communications about timing changes. And don't even get us started about those Zoom classes!Twishr is a community. It starts with people at the center. You as an Activity Center owner or manager, you as a parent of a child, you as a child and you as a coach. There is something for everyone with Twishr. At its heart, Twishr is trying to improve the experience that many parents go through while looking for an activity center for their children. What they learn, sometimes the hard way and through a lot of trial and error that not all activities will match their child's personality, or are worth their time and money. By creating a community of parents, and Activity Center owners, Twishr is opening up the conversation right up front. You can ask other parents privately feedback, you can connect with the center manager directly without having to call through a phone line from 5 to 7 in the evening. And once enrolled you can ask more feedback about how your child is doing. This lack of communication is also painful to you as the Activity Center owners, when suddenly out of the blue someone drops classes and does not tell you why. You already have a hard time working through the piles of Google Sheets, and spending time doing activities that can be done by machines, that you missed the most important part - your engagement and the communication. Twishr is a SaaS application that helps you manage the day to day
