Tinies BIS Playscheme

Great staff and I liked that the room was large enough to have so many different areas for the kids. Everyone at this venue welcomed my daughter so friendly and nicely that she left my hand happily which is not her behaviour normally. She is usually very shy and it takes her lots of time to join in. However, at BIS she made friends and had a great day.

There was no cover for Friday's at Jenny's usual preschool so we looked at the playscheme as recommended by a friend. I had trouble co ordinating paying by Childcare voucher but the playscheme itself was perfect, welcoming supportive and flexible.

It was my first time trying this holiday club and it was recommeded to me by a good friend at my daughters school.

I am not sure what my expectations were, but as far as kids clubs go I was disappointed by the attitude of staff. I am used to happy enthusiastic and organised staff which in turn gives me confidence that my child will be safe and happy. On arrival on my first day, I found the staff lying on the floor on the blankets and cusion area of the main room and was met with the information that they do not take kids for insurance reasons before 8.30am (it was 8.25am). At no point did it seem like the staff were getting ready to set up-just lounging around and hanging out and put out that we had arrived too early. I think 1 member of staff then checked the time and realised it was 8.25am and started rushing around getting lists and sign in sheets and wriat bands and complained about having to rush and multitask. She then noed it was my childs furst day and called on numerous occasions for a colleague to assist and show my daughter around. All staff that were "hanging out" had retreated to the kitchen and noone could hear her calling for assistance. Although this member of staff was friemdly and polite-the other situations and behaviour did not give me great confidence in leaving my child there, I was only happy that I worked so close and know my child will be ok in most settings. My child said she did have an ok day at the end of the day and the next day I was not met with this behaviour. I did note that any time I dropped off or collected my child that the staff generally did not rreally want to be there or have motivation or energy to do their role and were just waiting for the day to end from start to finish, this was apparent from a completely different team on the last day my child was there.I actually called up the day before to check opening and closing times as this was not mentioned anywhere during the booking process. I was advised on the phone that opening times are 8am-6pm-only to be told on the first day that it was 8.30am and they could not control what I was being told on the phone.

My department does not subsidise this service (which I advise you maybe look into-Ministry of Justice) so it was quite expensive and considerably more than local child care costs to where I live, which I am more than happy with and love the enthusiasm of the staff. If I were to weigh convenience cost and childcare appropriateness then I would tink twice about using this service again during another school holiday.

I am also not too impressed with the building/room, it was very basic and tired and quite dull-not very appealing for kids. There was a small old tv which I feel was used often to keep the children occupied with snacks-again-maybe so the staff could pay less attention to childcare and more attention to "Hanging out"-that is the impression I got.

Sorry this is negative but I feel that you can only improve service with constructive criticism.

Thanks.

It is a great service for working parents and is easily accessible as it is in walking distance to many of the Civil Service buildings and very secure. The staff are always friendly and professional. The activities are well planned out for the summer which provides the ability to book activities your child will enjoy in advance. The timings of the club are also ideal for my working pattern.
