What we can do for you

We provide a full range of accountancy and bookkeeping services to owners of day nurseries, playgroups and childminding businesses.

Maintaining financial records is both onerous and time-consuming, and outsourcing this allows you to spend more time with children.


We take pride in the high standard of the accounts that we prepare, irrespective of the size of the business involved.

We also appreciate that not everyone fully understands the information contained in their accounts and so we will take the time to explain things to you by looking behind the figures, rather than simply at them.

Management accounts

In order to make timely and meaningful management decisions businesses need accurate financial information.

The ability to compare your actual figures with original budgets enables you to manage and focus your business better. Management accounts will help you to identify trends in your business and highlight variations in your income or spending which may require special attention.

Bookkeeping advice

If you are going to run a successful day nursery or childminding business a good financial record keeping system is essential. This helps you to control and manage your money, and is essential for the preparation of your annual accounts. We can provide advice on simple but effective record keeping based on manual records or on using cloud based packages such as Xero, QuickBooks and Sage.

How we can help

We believe that the services we provide and the support and guidance we give our clients makes a real contribution to their success. Your choice of accountant or tax adviser is one of the key decisions you will take, both in business and in looking after your personal affairs.
