30 hours of free childcare is meant to cover the delivery of those 30 hours.  We understand it generally doesn’t!  Juggling costs and seeking savings without compromising quality is challenging.  At spark we strive to support and enhance standards while also becoming slicker and leaner.

As good business owners we can improve the efficiency; maybe redeploy revenue or staffing to reduce costs.  To deliver whatever our vision is, our businesses need to be financially strong and resilient.  At the moment looking at savings may well be a priority.

Risen from within the industry, and designed by and for nursery owners, managers, practitioners and parents, spark offers ways to invest in what is needed by choosing an individual or interlinking package.  Therefore, purchase just what you need.  These promote savings in time, staffing and general efficiency in the delivery and evaluation of the EYFS curriculum and nursery administration.

– Save time:-

When using spark for your EYFS, save time as:-

– Retain staff and reduce recruitment costs by enhancing job satisfaction:-

– As an ongoing training tool, spark supports less able or inexperienced staff in understanding and to appropriately deliver the EYFS curriculum confidently

– Evaluation and writing reports is less laborious as staff are supported through the software and with their literacy skills (2)

– spark pinpoints training needs, so there is a targeted focus on training expenditure and the difference it has made

– We offer you a heavily discounted price on over 39 E-learning approved CPD courses; saving over £16 per person each year (3) (2017 Nursery Award Winners)

-Cash flow savings on resources:-

– Generate more revenue:-

– Be professional and keep within the law; maintain at least the minimum/living wage rates by not needing staff to work ‘unpaid’ hours at home as they strive to keep up with paperwork

– Save on space and the maintenance perhaps! There’s no need for shelves of heavy files, where paper may slip out, get lost or get tatty. All the valuable information is kept safe and altogether in one place on spark

– Finally, become greener and do your bit to save the planet for the children in your care

Extra Info:-

sparkESSENTIAL and sparkPRO, are both EYFS software packages, although this article has focused upon sparkPRO, sparkESSENTIAL (where sparkPRO can be added later) can potentially improve your bottom line too.
