At Rise and Shine, we also have an in-house crèche based in the Dundee International Women’s Centre.
We have qualified and experienced Childcare workers who offer this service to anyone who wants affordable childcare in a safe and stimulating place.
Booking is easy – a phone call or an email can arrange an appointment to meet the Childcare Supervisor, Sabina.
After induction and the relevant forms are completed, your child can enjoy the wonderful childcare experience at Rise and Shine.
Over the years we have had amazing feedback from parents using our in-house crèche service.
Below is the story of Shaista and her experience of using Rise and Shine.
Shaista shares her story
Shaista is a young mother who moved to Dundee a few years ago. She has a daughter called Zohra who is now 3 years old.
When Shaista first moved to Dundee she did not know English. This affected her confidence and independence. She was unsure what to do as she had a 7-month-old baby.
Through a friend, she came to know that the Dundee International Women’s Centre provides English classes with childcare. She felt so excited and happy, that she would have the opportunity to educate herself in the English language.
“The whole process was so easy. I felt supported the whole way by the staff at Rise and Shine. I felt safe leaving my daughter in the crèche as it was a few doors away from my class.
The Childcare staff helped my daughter settle in and gave her different toys to play with, and to this day she loves going to the crèche. My daughter learnt how to crawl and walk in the crèche.
At the age of 2, Zohra was told by the Health Visitor that she had a speech delay. I discussed this with the Childcare staff and they helped support Zohra’s language needs. Zohra can now speak confidently with the staff in English and can say different words and sentences. She knows all the shapes, colours and can count.
This makes me happy as she couldn’t have done this without the dedication and help from the staff as at home I speak my own language with her.
Her confidence has grown so much and she has learnt many things and has made lots of friends, which she would have missed out on at home.
I can now speak English and have completed a Childcare course at the Centre too. None of this would have been possible without ‘Rise and Shine’.”
