What the directory covers

This list includes details of all the private, voluntary and independent chains of nurseries, kindergartens, playgroups and crèches known to Nursery World. Under the term ‘chain’, we have included groups with at least three nurseries up and running.

While we have tried to be comprehensive, we may have omitted some chains not known to us. If your chain is not in our listing, please contact us at [email protected] and we can include you in the next edition of Nursery Chains, due out in spring 2023.

Individual nurseries have not usually been named. Figures after each nursery’s location denote the number of places it is registered for. The number of employees includes full-time and part-time staff unless otherwise stated. Nurseries are listed alphabetically by location.

‘Places’ denotes the total number of registered nursery places. This does not include nursery classes in schools, out-of-school care or holiday places, but does include crèche provision and places in any nurseries that are owned and managed by each group.

The information in each entry reflects the state of play at the end of January 2022.
