Our Childcare

Nurture – Passion – Inclusion – Ambition – Collaboration 

Spring by Action for Children are a modern, award-winning childcare brand offering extended childcare services from birth to 12 years, through our Spring Nurseries and Spring Oscars Out of School Clubs across the United Kingdom. We are committed to providing seamless childcare solutions for every step of a child’s journey.

It is our mission to give children a healthy start in life, equipping them with the support, knowledge and nurturing they need to thrive, whilst leaving a lasting positive impact. We believe in providing high quality childcare services and opportunities for children that are accessible to all. We do this by ensuring a holistic and sustainable approach to health and wellbeing across all our settings for children and families, with a key focus on nutrition, outdoor play, and mental health. We pride ourselves on being a springboard for healthy first steps.

At Spring, we are committed to caring for every child based on their individual needs to unlock each child’s potential and grow their confidence through our unique learning opportunities, that allow them to explore and discover their own creativity, individuality, and imagination within our bright, engaging and safe environments.

Through doing the above, we are able to support our charity Action for Children, who support the UK’s most vulnerable children and families, with a mission to end childhood crisis.

Our People

Our team of compassionate professionals work collaboratively to achieve positive outcomes for children by supporting one another and sharing knowledge with their colleagues across the country. We are investors in our people, providing our staff with many different training opportunities from Forest School Leaders to Physical Activity and Nutrition Coordinators (PANCo). We also provide a career progression pathway to ensure they are always developing and applying extended knowledge when caring for your little ones. Our teams are passionate, inspired and motivated by seeing your children flourish.

Supporting Families

Spring  are enthusiastic about building strong partnerships with parents/carers and families to ensure they are fully involved with their child’s learning and development journey. We pride ourselves on effective parent communication and use our Famly app daily to notify parents about their child’s day and update them with any key news. Our staff are trained and able to signpost parents to additional support or write referrals if needed. We believe in working with you to gain the best outcome for your child.


We are committed to having a large focus on wellbeing for children, parents, and staff. Our teams have an in-depth understanding of mental health and wellbeing and the factors that can affect it.  Spring staff have the confidence to support both children and family’s mental health and wellbeing. Within all of our Spring Nurseries and Spring Oscars settings, children have a lot of outdoor time to play and explore. Our settings use an Eat Better Start Better accredited menu, ensuring high quality and nutritious food is served.

Did you know a baby or child that starts at a Spring Nursery can then move up to a Spring Oscars Out of School Club to provide wraparound care when they start school?
