Childbase Partnership named a ‘Top 20’ nursery group in the UK

Crescent Day Nursery scoop DayNurseries award

Childbase Partnership has scooped a major award after parent praise for its 44-day nurseries in England ensured a top spot amongst the very best Early Years providers in the UK.    

Thousands of parent recommendations for the best Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Good’ early years settings, were scrutinised to create the league tables for Daynurseries, the leading online Early Years directory and industry website, Annual Awards.

Childbase Partnership has five day nurseries with perfect 10/10 scores – Seabrook in Luton, Crescent in Birmingham, Pennypot in Surrey, Greengables in Berkshire, and Rowan Tree in Hertfordshire – and over half the group is currently on 9.9/10 based on parent recommendations and praise.

Celebrating the Daynurseries Award, Amie Draper, Deputy Manager of the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Crescent Day Nursery in Calthorpe Road, Edgbaston, said:

“We really couldn’t be more delighted or proud because it is our very busy parents who made this award possible. They are incredibly supportive of Crescent and instrumental in helping us ensure that every child gets the best possible nursery experience. That is why their praise and recommendations mean so much.”

The award is based on the nursery’s online recommendations from parents, relatives and guardians of children in day nurseries in the employee owned Childbase Partnership which topped both the Sunday Times Best Places to Work and UK Great Place to work Awards this year.

Amanda Hopkins, Reviews Manager said:

Childbase has shown that its nurseries are having a huge impact on the wellbeing and development of children. We would like to congratulate them on being a top nursery group, as rated by parents!
