Extra space will allow firm to expand

Evesham Editorial 19th Mar, 2020   0

AWARD winning Tricia Wellings, the founder of Bright Kids Nurseries and boss at MBK is taking on extra offices in nearby Sambourne to expand training facilities and provide more space for its mobile senior team.

Since Tricia started the business with two colleagues in 1999 it has grown to employ around 90 people and on any single day is looking after about 370 children.

At the same time its MBK Training arm, set up in 2013, is providing services to both company staff and outside nurseries, schools and colleges across the area.

As well as training in Early Years work it has developed a specialism in safeguarding.

“We established our own headquarters offices in 2013 in the former village library in Studley, renamed Millennium House, but we added another two nurseries to the group last year and expect to add another one or two this year,” said Tricia.

“We have also seen increasing demand for our training services and it became clear we were in need of additional office space to allow for our continued growth.”

The move was arranged through Redditch property agent John Truslove which sold the 1,575 sq ft offices at 8 Chestnut Court in Jill Lane, Sambourne on behalf of owner Coltham Developments Ltd for £227,500.

Ian Parker, joint managing director at John Truslove, said: “We know Tricia and the team at MBK very well and were delighted to help them on this further step in the company’s growth.”

The MBK group comprises the five Bright Kids nurseries – in Studley, Redditch, Evesham, Northfield in Birmingham and Coughton in Warwickshire – as well as five out-of-school clubs and an increasingly busy training company.
