With the option to look at staffing levels on a Group or Site Specific view, busy nurseries can manage otherwise complex staffing requirements from a single centralised record – in real time – without the need for spreadsheets.

Intelligently assign staff

StaffPlan gives you an overview of where staff are needed and who, from your existing teams could be available. 


For multi site settings, you’ll be able to see all of your staff, set their preferred locations and assess who is most suitable.


At a glance, you’ll be able to see if any of your  permanent staff are available to you before deciding to call in agency staff.

Reduce the need for expensive agency staff

Agency Staff cost significantly more per hour than members of your existing team and although they are usually experienced and well qualified, they may not be familiar with your setting and therefore impact the continuity of care in your provision.


Reducing the need for agency staff protects the quality of your provision and decreases cost to your business.


When agency staff are needed, you can also quickly validate requests using accurate real time data.

Priorities For Staff

Set your own suitability requirements & preferences

StaffPlan allows you to set and select your own weightings to assess the suitability of available staff.

Weightings are calculated based on a number of different criteria including:


– Preferred Site

– Qualification Level

– Familiarity with the Children

– Employees Hourly Rate


This allows you to select suitable staff based on the criteria most important to you at any particular time.

Simplify and centralise Staff Rotas

Creating and managing rotas for large settings or across multiple sites can be time consuming and complex.


StaffPlan simplifies the whole process by giving you the ability to select multiple staff members and assign them to multiple shifts across all of your rooms – from one simple screen.


Now the responsibility for all of your rotas can be managed by the same person or team.
