Welcome to HR 4 Nurseries – we exist to help you manage your nursery team safely, legally and profitably.

If you’re looking for HR help for your nursery, you’re in the right place – we’re the UK’s leading provider of HR support for early years, and whatever your people management needs are, we can supply them.

At HR 4 Nurseries, we’ve been working with day nurseries since 2009, providing specialist HR advice to the Early years sector. We help them navigate the tricky world of people management safely and legally.

If you’re a nursery owner, or responsible for HR within your nursery business, you’ll know that getting nursery HR right isn’t the easiest thing in the world.

You’ve got a whole lot more to consider than many other sectors, thanks to staff ratios, OFSTED and EYFS requirements, and – of course – the incredible and vital importance of keeping the children in your care safe.

Fortunately, for you, we’re more than up to the challenge – unlike most HR companies, we specialise in working with nurseries, which means we’ve seen it all, allowing us to help you avoid the most common mistakes that nurseries make, and helping you build a thriving and profitable business.

We’ll work with you on every element of people management, and here are some of the most common things we do for our nursery clients:

  • Advising on disciplinary issues
  • Managing probation periods and performance
  • Preparing employment contracts, policies and procedures
  • Acting as your HR specialist
  • Managing maternity, paternity and return to work
  • Dealing with sick leave and absence

What makes HR 4 Nurseries different?

We exist to help you make your nursery business better and more profitable, so you can experience a better lifestyle for you and the people you love.

What this means is that we’re on your side.  That doesn’t mean we’ll stand for any unethical behaviour, but it does mean that we’re here to help you manage YOUR business the way YOU want to manage it, without worrying about getting into legal hot water as a result.
