Our responsibility to the generations of children in our care extends farther than the boundaries of our nurseries as we continuously strive to support the communities in which we serve and attempt to meet need wherever it is found.
Every year, following a company-wide vote we adopt a charity for a focused fund-raising and awareness drive in addition to grant aid and voluntary support for community causes.
Childbase Partnership is delighted to be supporting the British Heart Foundation (BHF) which is the biggest independent funder of heart and circulatory disease research in the UK.
Our fundraising activity focuses on the charity’s research into congenital heart disease which results from problems with the development of the heart, or the large blood vessels surrounding it, in the womb. On average, around 13 babies are born every day in the UK with a heart defect.
Before the BHF existed, the majority of babies diagnosed with a severe heart defect in the UK did not survive to their first birthday. Today, thanks to research, more than eight out of ten survive to adulthood.
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
