More2Childcare is a Community Interest Company which means that we set aside a proportion of any profits to invest back into the community. In 2021 we won the prestigious Community Support Award at the Nursery World Awards. You can find out more about some of our other initiatives below:

Funding Career Coaching
One of our chosen projects in 2019 was to fully fund a career coaching programme for parents across More2Nurseries. By using the link you can read some of the fantastic feedback about how the programme helped them.
More2Childcare has previously funded MumsAid (a fantastic charity that support mothers suffering from post natal depression) for 12 months and offered a place for their counselling team to work with mothers whilst our nursery provided care for their children in our creche. The service was delivered free to the community and was available to mothers at More2 first and foremost.
