A touchscreen turnaround
How we helped a day nursery in London to revitalise its service and increase turnover by £100k in one year!
Despite a strong local reputation and OFSTED ratings, Rainbow Smiles nursery was finding it increasingly difficult to maintain its 50-place operational capacity. The nursery, like so many others, had been relying on inaccurate performance information recorded on paper.
With no confidence in the data, owner Tariq Ayyub knew that something had to change.
Built from the ground up in the Rainbow Smiles nursery, Prism has enabled Tariq to take complete control of his setting.
Practitioners now use touchscreen devices in place of paperwork to record everything from registers to EYFS observations, all directly linked to the integral back-office system.
With inefficiency removed from the everyday administrative activities, managers are freed-up to focus on improving quality and performance. Aided by Prism’s easy-to-read reports and dashboard displays, they now get all the information they need to make effective decisions with confidence.
Tariq said: “I was surprised by how quickly we saw results. I thought it would be harder to convince the practitioners, but they took to it straight away. They are empowered to spend more time doing the work that they love: supporting the children to reach their potential.”Tariq Ayyub
