The Aunties is the first nursery in the UK to use SCM Secure’s biometric PalmSecure solution

The Aunties’ Old School Nursery in Oxford has become the first nursery in the UK to use Swedish SCM Secure’s biometric PalmSecure™ solution.

SCM Secure, an innovative start-up company focusing on the education market, has signed an agreement with The Aunties’ Old School Nursery in Oxford. The Aunties’ Old School Nursery was established by the Enjily family almost 30 years ago, and remains a family-run nursery which also specialises in outdoor education.

The two Aunties’ Old School Nursery settings in Oxford (Stanton St John and Wheatley) have received ‘outstanding’ marks from Ofsted for 29 consecutive years, and they were awarded ‘Platinum’ by Investors in People in May 2017 and Shortlisted for the The Investors in People Awards 2017.

The Aunties’ Old School Nursery have installed the SCM Secure’s biometric PalmSecure™ solution together with their cloudbased Learning Management System (LMS) at its two settings. With SCM Secure’s biometric PalmSecure™ solution parents register themselves and their children upon arrival at the nurseries which makes the registration process easier, quicker, and much more efficient.

“The Aunties have long had a reputation for being real visionaries and innovators, whilst maintaining our core focus of integrity to children,” says Sandy Enjily, co-founder of The Aunties. “SCM Secure hold very similar values in this respect and, upon meeting Eva and Joakim, we quickly realised that we would be able to develop a special relationship that would bring innovative efficiency to the children in our care. The childcare industry is about ‘people’, and SCM Secure have found a way of introducing technology into that people-based universe. The Aunties applaud the rare integrity, values-based, visionary approach displayed by SCM Secure and feel privileged to be part of such a synergistic movement.”
Joakim Vollert, Head of Sales at SCM Secure UK says “We are very happy to have The Aunties’ Old School Nursery as our first customer in the United Kingdom. Working with the experienced team at The Aunties can only make our system stronger and enhance our ability to improve the learning experience for nurseries worldwide. In order to provide the best possible solution for education providers, we need strong partnerships within the sector, and The Aunties is one such partner. Combined with their attention to all aspects of the well-being of the children in their care, we can build and adapt a technological solution that will help the nursery staff in their everyday work – giving them even more time to spend with the children.”
Both parties are looking forward to working together to help develop the early years sector in the United Kingdom, while acting as an inspirational example for preschools and nurseries all over the world.
