Hoop - the popular app that allows parents to find and pay for classes and events for their children - will close its doors on 17th July, leaving thousands of businesses and parents feeling a little lost.
But they needn't feel lost! Toddle About is the perfect alternative to Hoop.
Any business that finds itself unexpectedly looking for a new booking system so they can take bookings and payments online for their classes need look no further - Toddle About has got your back.
Powered by the Book That In booking system, businesses can advertise their sessions for free on the Toddle About website, reaching tens of thousands of parents every month, and they can take bookings and payments for their classes and events.

Parents can filter by location, online/offline, age of child, type of class, time of day and more. They can even enter a free text search, which works in much the same way as a search on Amazon.
