About the employer

All About Children was established in 2010 by three colleagues who had worked together previously. Whilst they enjoyed working in the sector, they felt disillusioned by what was being provided. They were really passionate about childcare and wanted to establish a group that would put children at the centre of everything that they did, and so, All About Children was born.

Back in 2010, All About Children’s journey began with the belief that nothing was more important than delivering outstanding outcomes for children. This is a belief that our work family of over 900 members still strongly stand by today.
