The news agenda has been recently dominated by the announcement that more and more women are leaving their jobs to look after their families,  due to the high cost of childcare. But, here at Third Door we are working to break the mould of traditional childcare by offering flexibility to families.

As a result we have recently been shortlisted for two prestigious industry awards. The Nursery World Awards 2011 and O2 Smarta Business Awards both have recognised Third Door as an innovative business. The Smarta Awards are a collection of the UK’s savviest, enterprising, most disruptive small businesses in the UK. Naturally, we were delighted to be finalists in both these prestigious awards. We set up Third Door last year as we recognised UK work patterns were shifting. As a result, we have been inundated with new membership requests recently as parents look for a solution that will help them juggle work and childcare. So much so, we are currently looking at locations for our next Third Door site…more on that to follow soon!

We’ve recently been awarded a Good in Ofsted with an Outstanding in the Parent-Carer category. In the meantime wish us luck in getting through the another award we have been shortlisted for: Nursery Management Today ‘ Best New Business’ 🙂
