  • If you are not directly working with the children in the nursery you don’t need any special qualification if you are solely funding it.
  • RESEARCH – What other childcare providers are there in the area? Ring them up – if there is a waiting list that means there is a need for a new nursery.
  • LOCATION IS KEY – Premises near train stations are great for working parents to drop off their little ones.

  • STAFF – Start interviewing before ofstead come and meet you as they will want a list of people that will be working at your nursery
