I became involved in the nursery sector in 1995 when I was a working Mum with two small children. During the next 8 years I learnt a lot about nurseries by asking a lot of questions, listening to the feedback and evaluating the insurance options that were available. I concluded that we could develop a better product, a more appropriate product in line with the needs of this specialist industry. Whilst this was taking place, I was also starting to understand the complexities of running my own business as I was invited to be a Director in 1999. This introduced the challenges of employing staff, controlling risk, delighting customers, keeping the paperwork moving and staying on track with IT.
So this resulted in the launch of dot2dot in 2003 which has a key focus of providing:
I pride myself that we have embedded a forward thinking culture where everyone’s contribution counts, whether this is our staff’s or our client’s. However there are certain things which will always remain consistent and that is the quality of the care we provide.
Our aim is to be the best, look after you and your business and deliver a service second to none.
