We offer our services to small private nursery business.

We worked within the private nursery sector for seven years and helped take a start-up creche creating a business with a turnover of approximately one million pounds. We can offer a comprehensive service including payroll services for your staff. A profitable nursery business must get the occupancy to staff ratio correct. It is also important that the area or premises can support the separation of the baby unit with the 1-2 year olds, 2-3, 3-4 and 4-5 area. As part of your strategy you must also consider if you are going to have an intake of before and after school care children. It is important to look at the option of partnership with the local authority to provide subsidised childcare places, currently 12.5 hours per week for 38 weeks in Scotland. Other considerations would include searching for any grants available for capital play equipment and any other revenue grants which may be available.
