79 2 81 Childcare - Employer

Alison first started looking for nurseries for her eldest child Grace now 15, when she wanted to return to work after maternity. Grace (then 9 months), unfortunately as with so many children, had other ideas and did not want to go to nursery, a battle of wills ensued and the stress of dropping off a screaming little girl became too unbearable and very prison like. Luckily for Alison her retired mum and dad came to the rescue and like so many grandparents took to look after Grace a couple of times a week.!!!!

When William was born 3 years later, Alison dreaded the experience of looking for a Nursery AGAIN but knew that for her ageing parents 2 children would be a handful. She embarked on a big adventure and set up her own Nursery at 81 Stonegate Road with another mum.

William and Grace very much enjoyed being with mum at work and was very much loved by Helen and Tracy (managers of the setting) and all the other girls. The company grew and so did Alison’s family. In 2009 Alison gave birth to her third child Hugo. There was a 10 year gap between Grace 1st born and Hugo. Alison would need to return to work quickly as the business had grown and juggling a baby and 2 other children would need some thought. A nursery was too clinical for such a small baby to take and a childminders did not provide the security and safety of a setting. Becky came to the rescue and became Hugo home from home nanny. This allowed Alison to balance the work life balance and she opened her home to other children to experience the wonders of Super Nanny Becky.
