JULY 20, 2021: Staffordshire entrepreneur Mo Chaudry has expanded his business portfolio by investing in a new chain of childcare centres.
The leisure and fitness pioneer behind Waterworld Leisure Resort, M Club Spa & Fitness, Adventure Mini Golf and Pulse Fitness has added Nurture Childcare to his group.
Mo has joined forces with ambitious nurse and health visitor Harriett Latham for this latest venture, opening a first base at his M Club in Newcastle, with a second at the newest Stoke-on-Trent club in Festival Park soon to follow.
And Mo says ‘all options are on the table’ regarding the possibilities for further expansion.
Nurture Childcare is inspired by the Montessori approach to childcare, where children from six weeks to five years old receive the highest quality care in enabling and natural environments.
Mo said: “When I met Harriett, heard about her plans and saw her drive and determination, I was inspired to invest in her.
“The childcare sector is a very good fit for our existing brands, and with Harriett as the owner manager of Nurture Childcare, we are very excited about what the future holds.
“We are very much viewing these first two sites as a pilot, which could be the launchpad for a significant growth for us in the childcare sector.”
Mo added: “Harriett understands how important it is to find the right nursery for your child, and has taken everything into consideration to create a high quality setting. I believe there is considerable scope for growth for us in this sector.”
Mother-of-three Harriett, 33, said: “I am a very driven and ambitious person, and want to build a top-quality business that I can feel proud and passionate about.
“To have the opportunity to work with Mo and benefit from his knowledge and experience is fantastic for me. We want to build close relationships with parents, and work with them to help their children learn through play. We encourage each child to be creative and imaginative while they are with us.”
Nurture Childcare has already had to take on extra staff after hitting its three-month target for customers in barely two weeks. All the company’s staff have a minimum level three childcare qualification, right up to degree-level.
