Benefits of a Virtual Tour

Parents are able to “get a feel” for your space without distributions to their busy schedules. Virtual tours can include narration or points of interest.
Parents Want to Know How Safe Your School is
Potty-training parents will be interested to see how close restrooms are to the classroom. Virtual tours can show if a school has classroom doors or joint open-concept rooms. Highlight your classroom hand-washing stations. Parents will be pleasantly surprised to view your indoor gym for kids to enjoy during inclement weather.
Our team of professional photographers are certified to take photos on behalf of Google. As a result, we are able to upload your virtual tour to Google Maps. Photographs will also appear on the Google Local page for your business. Complimentary still photos accompany the tour and provide parents more insight into your location.

Photographing your Facility
Our photographers work around your schedule and aim to be as inconspicuous as possible. Photoshoots do not require special lighting, so it is possible to shoot your virtual tour in the evening or weekends when your facility is closed. And don’t worry, most photoshoots only take about an hour.
Most 360° virtual tours focus on the main areas of your business where children will play
We can avoid your business office or staff breakroom. The goal of the tour is to illustrate to parents where their children will be spending their time.
The safety of children visiting your facility is paramount to us. We are parents as well. With this in mind, children will NEVER appear in your 360° virtual tour. If the photoshoot occurs when children are present, the images will have their faces blurred out.
