At Rise & Shine we also offer a supply staff service to Out of School Clubs in Dundee.
Why do Out of School Clubs need supply staff?
Out of School Clubs offer an amazing service for working parents who are unable to pick up their children at 3 pm.
Without a pool of qualified childcare staff, this service would not be able to function. Supply staff are required to cover staff holidays and sickness.
Why did Hilltown and Mill of Mains get in touch?
Ann Marie, on behalf of both Hilltown and Mill of Mains, found herself struggling to get qualified staff to cover when her employees went on holiday or were off sick.
She contacted ‘Rise & Shine’ as she knew they could provide a supply staff service and that all the childcare workers are experienced and qualified.
How were Rise & Shine able to help?
After the initial contact, a risk assessment was conducted of the Out of School Club venue and all the relevant paperwork was completed. Ann Marie discussed her requirements with the Childcare Manager.
As a result, ‘Rise & Shine’ childcare staff are now regularly supplied to Hilltown and Mill of Mains Out of School Clubs.
This is the positive review that Ann Marie Macklin gave the service:
“I have used the Rise & Shine supply staff service regularly for two different Dundee Out of School Clubs over the past couple of years – Hilltown and Mill of Mains.
The service is well managed, flexible and responsive. I find the service useful as we often need to have cover for staff absences or holidays and don’t have a pool of our own staff on these occasions.
The service gives peace of mind that we are getting trained and well-supervised staff who have undergone all the necessary checks. It is very easy to book, even at short notice or in an emergency, and the cost is reasonable given that all the checks, training, etc. are carried out by Rise & Shine.
We have a very multi-cultural service and so having staff reflecting the children’s own cultures has given real added value. The staff really stand out and show a genuine interest and commitment to working with our children. They also have a lot of experience in building-based and mobile creches.
The team are well managed and are clear about their roles in terms of being ready to take on the challenges of working in a new environment, asking questions etc.”
All of our staff at Rise & Shine are fully qualified and are registered with the SSSC.
