WMB Nursery Consultancy & Lifeline
……. New Lease of Life
Is consultancy right for you?
Are you struggling to see the future for your business? Are you facing challenges managing or motivating your team? Does the thought of going to work in the morning fill you with dread?
Or perhaps things are going well, but there are areas where you know you can improve. Maybe you need to get a better grip on financial management, or want to feel better prepared for that next Ofsted inspection.
Whether you’re grappling with problems big or small, the chances are we’ve experienced them ourselves. The good news is, we’ve overcome them – and we’d love to help you do the same.
Why choose WMB Nursery Insights?
With combined experience of more than 30 years working in education, childcare and business, our expert team has the know how to offer practical solutions to any issue.
Our results speak for themselves. We’ve set up six nurseries in just five years, and every single one of our Ofsted inspections has resulted in a grading of “outstanding” or “good”.
We’ve learned a lot along the way, and we’re passionate about sharing that knowledge to get the best results for children and their families.
We understand that every nursery is different. Our approach is built on listening – to you, your staff, partners, and the children and parents who use your services (as well as sometimes those who don’t). We’ll look in detail at what’s working and what isn’t, and we’ll draw up realistic plans to get things back on track.
So if you’re searching for a fresh perspective on the issues you’re facing, and you want solutions that bring real results, talk to us.
Our consultancy team brings together expertise in childcare and extensive experience in leadership and business management. It’s a combination that leaves us uniquely placed to take a forensic look at whatever issues you’re experiencing, and identify practical steps to address them.
