What we do
Shine Childcare is a family-run private nursery chain created, owned and managed by Graham and Amika Abbott, with four large nurseries based in Leeds, Huddersfield, Manchester and Halifax; three of which are rated by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas with the newly acquired site in Halifax awaiting inspection. Shine Childcare was set up to bring families from all walks of life together and provide the richest learning and development environment. We believe in helping children learn through play and we love what we do. The business prides itself on delivering outstanding quality childcare every minute of every day.
Shine Childcare’s excellent reputation resulted in an invitation by the British Government, Department for International Trade (DIT) to attend the China-UK Commercial Forum trade mission in September 2017, which took place in the Chinese cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen. Since then Shine Childcare has put together an international team that is working with several large companies and educational institutions in China. The commitment is to provide high-quality British early years style education to hundreds and thousands of families in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and many other Chinese cities.
As a thriving company, we are constantly focusing on the inclusion, development, education and security of our children as well as our staff. We believe that employees are the greatest asset of any organisation and we therefore encourage every member of staff to reach their full potential. Under the guidance of our key values, we provide our staff with continuous professional development via bespoke training programs. As we consistently reflect on our practice we have introduced a program of continuous improvement to everything we do, which in turn ensures our exceptional standards are maintained.
