Case Study: Family Fun Day

Astra Zeneca Pharmaceutical offers a Family Fun Day for the staff to be able to bring their children to work for the day.

The children have a fun-filled day from 9am to 4pm.

Type of contract

Managed Service Contract. We operate the crèche provision in its entirety.

Size of contract: 1 day per year.

Length of contract: We have managed Astra Zeneca's 2011 and 2013 Family Fun days.

The Astra Zeneca Pharmaceutical brief

Responsible for well-being and safety for up to 60 children, responsible for the smooth running for the day which includes Entertainment, a Weird Science Show including break-out sessions, Lunch & Pantomime at the end of the Day.

Delivery: Operating within a specific area at Astra Zeneca's Offices, Tinies had to adapt to ensure child safety in line with H&S. Worked with the Venue operators to ensure access to toilets, as well as all staff undergoing briefing in case of 'protestor' attack.

We worked with the Client to ensure we had excellent understanding of timings on the day in order to ensure smooth running and breaks were managed.

Tinies deliverables

Tinies were not required to provide any equipment, just a staff team who were capable of running a busy day and ensuring children were safe, and essentially having a wonderful time.

We carried out a full and through risk assessment of the Venue prior to the event which covers all safety and security measures.

Tinies select a fully qualified team who possess varied skills to ensure we can cater for all ages attending. This team has to be chosen in advance in order to pass through the enhanced security checks required for a government event. All team members are interviewed, reference checked and hold a DBS or PVG check (police check), ensuring the safety of the children. The Tinies Team are easily identifiable in their 'Tinies' uniform' - logoed polo shirts, black trousers / shorts and name badges.

Client feedback

"The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the day ran smoothly, which we could not have achieved without the Tinies team help'' Kim Prior, Family Day Coordinator

Tinies really did make our day and I would recommend your services to anybody else in a heartbeat. We have just landed home after a truly amazing couple of days at Cain Manor and I can honestly say that one of the things that really made our day was the work your team put in.

You understood our vision so perfectly and did such an incredible job; we just can't thank you enough. Without exception, the parents were just blown away by how easily you engaged the children from the minute you arrived and continued to do so throughout the day. The team were so lovely that the children just gravitated towards them instantly!

The measure of this was that Lottie (my bridesmaid and best friend's daughter who normally refuses to leave her Mum's hip if she's anywhere within a 2 mile radius!) actually went off with you! Please don't underestimate what an incredible achievement that was! I know you're all professionals and are therefore really good at knowing how to win the little ones over but Lottie is a particularly difficult customer.

I just want to thank you all so much.
