Nursery provider launches scheme to make return to work easier for parents
1:10pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
AN award-winning nursery provider is offering local businesses discounted childcare as part of a new scheme to ‘link-up’ with employers and help ease new parents back into work.
Bright Kids Nursery Group – a major childcare provider with settings in Crabbs Cross, Studley and Northfield – has launched its Linked Employer scheme to encourage parents to return to work after having children.
Tricia Wellings, Bright Kids chief executive, said: “The cost of childcare is often a disincentive for valued employees to return to work. Even with government subsidies a lot of families still struggle.
“We want to offer local businesses the opportunity to join our network and in turn offer their employees the benefits of half price registration fees, discounted fees and priority booking when spaces are limited.
“Not only will staff benefit from these fantastic offers but they can return to work content in the knowledge that their children are safe and well cared for in our well-established settings.”
With registration fees currently standing at £50, employees of a Linked Employer company instantly save £25 when they sign their children up at Bright Kids.
On top of this they will enjoy a discount of 10 per cent off fees for the first six months.
An average saving of up to £500 for a full-time working parent and over £110 for a part-time working parent.
As well as this parents will be offered priority booking when spaces are limited, which means that employees of Linked Employer companies will jump to the head of the queue at peak times.
Linked Employer companies will also receive regular updates from Bright Kids.
To arrange a Linked Employer meeting contact Tricia Bright Kids on 01527 452430 or register at bright-kids.co.uk/linkedemployer.
