REC Childcare Code of Practice

Tinies agencies are corporate members of REC

In an industry that doesn't require childcare recruitment agencies to be registered, Tinies felt that it was essential to join an organisation, such as REC, as a form of self-regulation. We are audited by REC to ensure that our practices conform with their code of practice.

Tinies complies with REC's best practice:

We comply with all principles of the REC Code of Professional Practice.

We have read and understood the guide to comply with the REC Code of Professional Practice.

We comply with current legislation.

We interview all carers face-to-face.

We take a minimum of two written employer references, and, where possible, make additional enquiries.

We ensure that carers have the relevant experience and qualifications for the job.

We verify carers' qualifications by viewing the original diploma or by checking with the relevant training body.

We check the carers' employment history and enquire about gaps in employment.

We actively encourage our carers to undertake a paediatric first aid certificate.

We provide full details of the position to the carer before submitting their details to the familiy.

We promote diversity.
