What do you get from NDNA?
We're here to give our members the support and advice they need to run healthy and successful businesses
Time; resources; money and cashflow; paperwork… our members tell us about the kinds of challenges they face each day.
We can’t wave a magic wand, but we can offer advice and support on the issues all nurseries face such as safeguarding, employing the right team, sustainability and developing positive relationships with parents.
We tell you about local and national NDNA events, where you can share ideas and issues with others in a similar role to yours.
We support your nursery with tried and tested policies and procedures, regular sector updates to ensure you don’t miss a thing, and that's only the beginning...!
Here are some of the ways we help our members:
Our wide range of training days, designed by our specialist Early Years Advisers, will help you to empower your staff, so you can step back and look at the direction you want to take your business over the coming years. NDNA members receive discounts on all training courses and publications.
Give exemplary childcare
e-Quality Counts is NDNA’s flagship training scheme and is highly regarded in the nursery sector.
When you achieve the e-Quality Counts accreditation, you have demonstrated exemplary childcare above and beyond the requirements of the regulators such as Ofsted.

Keep up with the law
When legislation changes, you can be sure you’ll hear about it first, with advice on exactly what action to take.
Case Study - the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation
In December 2014, the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation determined that all nurseries in the UK who provide snacks and meals to children must be able to detail and prove what ingredients are in every single food dish they serve. Our Allergy Awareness training was developed within days of the change in the law, and offered to our members for just £11.99.
