Win a Bundle of Fang-tastic Prizes this Halloween!

Over the past month, the cost of living crisis has become a major challenge facing all childcare and education settings. It’s becoming clear that settings must commit time and energy to make sure they’re doing everything they can to save money and provide the best experience for their children.  

We understand that it can be difficult for nurseries to provide the best resources and experiences they can in the current financial climate, which is why we wanted to help.

We’ve partnered with some of our favourite brands to give away five amazing prizes to one nominated childcare setting on Wednesday 26th October 2022. 

Our new Competition will give your setting a chance to win some spooktacular goodies worth over £500 to share with your children this Halloween!
