Early Years: Benchmarking request from Harmony Nursery

Quick Navigation

Feb 25 2022

Dear Daycare Provider colleagues,

At a recent management committee meeting of our day nursery we discussed two crucial issues that we feel may be relevant to all local providers.  The issues discussed were:

  • Fees for services especially in light of the increase in the London Living Wage, utilities and food, and the affordability of increased fees for families already under similar pressures themselves.
  • The challenges of recruiting and retaining good staff.

We feel it might be useful for all providers to undertake a brief benchmarking exercise which could be anonymously complied based on the area of the borough where you are located (first part of postcode e.g. SW17).

If interested, please complete and submit the attached simple questionnaires by the 5th March 2022 using the links below:
