About Childbase Partnership

Childbase Partnership are a childcare and education group with 42 facilities across the UK. They aim to be the preferred provider of childcare and education services within the communities they serve and the preferred employer of childcare professionals within the sector.

Fun is an essential ingredient in all Childbase Partnership nurseries where the care and education opportunities for each and every child are as extraordinary as the staff who provide them.

State-of-the-art innovative learning through play programmes in imaginative age-appropriate spaces, both in and outdoors, ensure children of all ages are happy and confident at Childbase. They also aim to attract, develop and retain high-quality, engaged partners, whilst promoting Childbase Partnership as the employer of choice within the Childcare sector.

Values within the company include quality matters, sustainability matters, communication matters.

To celebrate success over the last 28 years, Childbase created the ‘museum of us’ and invited colleagues to attend and look through the museum.
