A major concern and challenge in childcare is the incidence of staff turnover, which can create unnecessary anxiety for children. One of the most impressive features of Kids Plus, providing yet another “point of difference”, is the innovative approach to recruiting and keeping the very best people.
- To attract and retain well-qualified staff, Kids Plus believe in giving regular rewards and benefits to our valued carers as well as free education and training days and on-the-job support. Other benefits including the provision of attractive uniforms, regular RDO’s (Rostered Days Off) for full-time staff.
- While formal recognition and incentives is good, it’s the intangible benefits that really make all the difference. By regularly visiting each centre, taking time to observe what’s going on and listening to staff concerns, and not forgetting little extras like morning teas and Christmas presents, we make sure our carers feel appreciated and are happy to be working in a Kids Plus centre.
- When our carers are happy, that means children in our centres feel happy, more secure and comfortable. And all of that keeps you (our families) happy too!
