SIPTU Members Offer: Attendance Software

Paperwork can seem endless, and the National Childcare Scheme isn’t going to make things easier.

That’s why SIPTU has teamed up with Child Paths to bring you an amazing offer on attendance software.

You can use the Child Paths attendance tool for FREE for one year if you are a SIPTU member or your service is unionised. The software is easy to use and is National Childcare Scheme compliant.

What Does It Do?

The Child Paths attendance tool will calculate all your children’s hours automatically. It will also alert you when a child is out consecutive days over a number of weeks.

When a child has missed the same day for 8 consecutive weeks, the child’s name will turn RED and say “NCS Warning” so you can contact parents. The Attendance Report will also show the child’s projected hours versus the actual hours the child was in the service. It will also highlight & calculate if the children did over or under the projected hours.

You can then decide to invoice parents based on the projected or the actual hours. You also get to try the rest of the platform for FREE for a month which includes observations, curriculum planning and much more.

You can cancel at any time and if you chose to continue using the software after the year it will only cost €0.50c per child per month thereafter.
