About Third Door
Third Door is about you.
Your family, your career, and your peace of mind.
We bring together a collaborative community of working parents and passionate childcare professionals, who believe that work and family can grow together.
We understand the difficulties faced by today’s working parents when looking for flexible childcare – our founder, Shazia, faced the same difficulties when returning to work after her first child.
Back in 2008, Shazia was trying to work around looking after her five-month-old daughter and finding it extremely difficult. She wanted a place to work in peace, where her baby would be cared for nearby. Nowhere offered a solution, so Shazia and her husband Yusuf decided to create one themselves.
And so Third Door was born!
Third Door is a collaborative and dynamic community, built with the passionate belief that it is possible to excel in your career AND be around for your children.
Our ethos is very important to us, and we aim to create an environment where children, parents and staff are all able to embody our values together.
It is through mutual respect that we have created the wonderful atmosphere we have at Third Door.
We ask our members, children and team to respect our environment, not to waste resources and recycle what they can. Respect for each other is at the heart of everything we do; receptionist, Head of Learning, CEO, IT Consultant, parent, child, Early Years Educator; it makes Third Door what it is.
Our nursery team are curious childcare practitioners, who have each worked on qualifications in their spare time to help improve their practice and careers. We look to employ people who are curious about their work with small children. This helps the children develop a natural curiosity, and the activities and planning we do around each child encourage their interests.
Clearly, our adult members also value curiosity as many have chosen to use Third Door to create their own careers and businesses.
We find that confidence and peace of mind go hand in hand – for children and for parents. Before we can teach young children anything they must have the confidence to be themselves in our setting. We invest a lot of energy in nurturing each child to bring out their individual characters.
Confidence also comes from being in a smaller setting with a mix of ages – we find that older and younger children gain confidence by interacting with each other. We place a lot of emphasis on training our team to have the confidence to be excellent practitioners within our setting. And parents gain confidence and peace of mind working near their children, knowing that they are having a great time in our nursery!
