“Mum, Dad, I’m BORED!”
What parent doesn’t dread these words? People the world over want the very best for their kids in terms of activities – Class for Kids is the platform to take advantage of this huge, underserved sector.
Formed in 2013 out of the frustration of founder and former tennis coach Nikki Th’ng at the difficulty he faced as a parent to find up-to-date class information or make payments, Class for Kids solves all of these challenges by making bookings and payments, taking customer details and registers, and managing finances all
in one place. Clubs buy a license to the SaaS to manage all of their administrative tasks effortlessly – the platform’s elegance is the reason why Class for Kids was used by more than half a million parents in 2020, processing more than £30 million in payments.

A comprehensive service
Class for Kids provides clubs with a comprehensive service to manage all of their business needs. With the founders Nikki Th’ng and Kevin MacDonell having originally built the platform using their technical expertise, the workforce now stands at 40, including sales, customer-service and marketing staff.
The COVID-19 pandemic was a catalyst in growth, helping clubs overcome the challenges of lockdown by helping with remote options and providing support to affected businesses. In addition, the platform’s extensive network provided an ideal means of collaborative support for members.
In what was a stagnant industry, parents and carers now find it much easier to manage their kids’ activities. Class for Kids has become the predominant platform used in the children’s activities industry within the UK, and has revolutionised the way in which clubs are operated through the introduction of a centralised booking and payments system.
The platform has taken advantage of the smartphone revolution, which has made it significantly easier for parents and clubs to connect. In addition, the online payments system has created a trustworthy, safe and reliable way of accounting for both businesses and parents.
VivoVentures provided invaluable experience in the search for investment, using its vast knowledge in the technology industry and valuable insights into the commercial aspects of growing and scaling the business. The result: close to £4 million of financing that’s helped the business expand to take up the entire 7,900 sq ft third floor in a central Glasgow office space.
The future is bright!
Class for Kids is currently testing in new markets, such as New Zealand, Australia, the US and Canada, while continuing to use its foothold in the UK to hone and shape its products and services.
