We have had so many requests for a simple, affordable, club management product over the years that we are delighted to announce the launch of the OOSA Club Database. This really straightforward database product is designed to simplify the administrative process of recording bookings, creating daily registers, and generating invoices.
Developed by the child-minding software experts CM Software; the OOSA Club Database is available exclusively to OOSA members. There are eight different designs, with prices starting at £327 for club design JENN, and rising to £547 for club design TIM (which includes an additional invoice method which offers a 10 week pre-booking option with designated invoice and register. The prices are a one-off cost and there is no monthly fee or annual subscription and no hidden set-up charges. If you require a given club design to be altered, this will usually attract a nominal additional charge.
There are now 8 designs currently available, each offering a different charge combination. Method of use is identical across the features to facilitate ease and simplicity of use. Data by way of the main child data entry form (where data is only entered once) is imported time and again as use of the software dictates. A variety of register designs and two different invoice methods come as standard.
Each design comes in either CORE version (for the smaller club setting) or PROFESSIONAL version (which offers greater range of finance data capture options, report features and inclusion of Bespoke Invoice).

The OOSA Club Database runs on your computer and uses Microsoft Access. You may already have this installed on your computer as part of Microsoft Office. If you do not have Microsoft Access installed on your computer you will need to buy the software before you can run the OOSA Club Database.
There are a couple of different ways to buy Microsoft Access. You can:
- Buy Microsoft Access outright with an educational discount (if your club is Ofsted-registered) - you just need to put your EY number in the comment box as the purchase goes through
- Purchase Microsoft Office (which includes Microsoft Access) for one device, for £5.99 per month
