We are committed to being corporate and socially responsible by providing flexible, affordable, high-quality childcare that is supportive and respective of the community dynamics, striving to support the families within the communities we serve. This includes our customers, our people and families within the wider community and beyond.
Nurturing our People
Our recruitment strategy and apprenticeship programmes aim to always employ the best talent. We are committed to equality and inclusion across our network of nurseries and offer fantastic opportunities for continuous professional development for all our people.
Promoting early years careers is one of our strategic goals. We attract, employ, nurture and develop individuals, supporting and equipping them to have the necessary skills to serve our customers and that these individuals represent the communities in which we work.
We will create local employment opportunities by working with agencies, local schools and universities nearby to attract and promote childcare as a career. Enhancing our apprenticeships to enable us to ‘grow our own talent’ is key; we currently have 100 apprenticeships across our network and commit to 2-3 students across every single setting. We see the advantage of hiring those from all walks of life, which includes those who are within their later years and are looking for their second careers. These individuals bring such life experiences not just for the children but also to the dynamics of the team.
Protecting the Environment
We have undertaken a number of energy saving and emission reduction measures to reduce our carbon footprint with an aim to become carbon neutral.
Eco Schools operates in 70 countries and engages 19.5 million young people globally. This makes Eco-Schools the largest educational programme on the planet! Across our nurseries, we also encourage our children to be mindful and caring towards the world they live in and to become environmentally aware, therefore our entire network is committed to achieving and retaining the Eco School Green Flag Award.
We are committed to supporting our communities. One way in which we are able to do this, is through charity involvement.
We support a range of charities across the UK with different activities and fundraising days with full involvement from the children, our employees and families.
Our corporate charity partner is Home-Start UK and was selected as it strategically aligned to our brand integrity and company philosophy.
