Our Mission

Founded to build brighter futures for local children and their families

We believe children learn through play. We strive to understand every child, plan for their individual needs and work in partnership with parents to ensure that each child can reach their full potential.

As well as running two ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted-rated nurseries, we deliver Children and Family Centre Services for all families across the borough of Waltham Forest.

We employ more than 130 dedicated members of staff with expertise in early years care and education, family support, special educational needs, and healthy living.

Our charity was founded in 1981 by our current chief executive Pauline Thomas. In 2011, Pauline was awarded an MBE for services to children and education.
