Employee Ownership

What is Employee Ownership

Every colleague in our company is a co-owner, which means they contribute to more than just the lives of the children in our nurseries, they contribute to various aspects of the company as a whole. 

Working under the banner “We all contribute, we all benefit”, Childbase Partnership employee owners have easy access to all company information and a voice individually and collectively through the 45-member, elected Partnership Council. Councillors, one from each nursery and Head Office, meet quarterly and are regular and valued contributors at main Board meetings.

In January 2024 our ‘Partnership Reward Days’ initiative launched. Based on hours worked in the previous three months, full-timers can have up to five days extra paid leave in each quarter with pro-rata allocations for others. This is in addition to their annual leave entitlement and Bank Holidays.  Find out more

Our colleagues also share in the financial success of our company and share equal tax-free Dividend Payments annually when the company has a successful year. Previous dividend payments have ranged from £750 to £3000.
