There were celebrations all round this week as our flagship Studley Nursery celebrated its 21st birthday!
Set up by our owner, local entrepreneur Tricia Wellings, Bright Kids Studley, based on The Slough, opened its doors on 18th January 1999 – with just four children and three members of staff on the books.
Word soon got around and it went from strength to strength, obtaining lottery funding to set up out of school care and filling the books within the first 12 months.
Following the success of Studley, Tricia has since opened a further four nurseries, in Crabbs Cross and Northfield, and more recently Coughton and Evesham, four out of school settings and an early years training centre and early years products provider.
And last year she won the Pride of Stratford Business Person of the Year Award!
Tricia said: “I am so proud to see our flagship setting celebrating its 21st birthday. We’re passionate about providing excellent childcare to the people of Studley and are thrilled to have reached this milestone. Happy birthday to all of the staff and children in our Studley setting who make it the success that it is, and here’s to many more years!”
