About the employer

Our journey began in 2012 when two mums, Elena and Aimee, decided to follow their dream to open a nursery. Their aim was to provide a service to working parents that made leaving their little ones, to return to work, slightly easier. Coming from large family backgrounds and as mums themselves, they understood first-hand what families needed from day nurseries and pre schools.
