Peacharno Consulting

Experts in wellbeing, childcare & education


Here are a few extracts of what just some of our happy client’s have to say about our services.

We are an 86 place nursery and have been rated outstanding by Ofsted on two occasions in the last ten years. However, recently we felt that we were starting to lose a little momentum and we needed some fresh ideas to re-energise our team. Consequently, we asked Peacharno to come in and provide us with a quality audit using the EYFS as a framework.

Kate and Julie were very thorough and honest with their assessment of both the nursery and our management team, giving us considerable food for thought. What we value most about Peacharno is the fact that both Kate and Julie have spent many years managing a leading nursery chain, as well as just recently opening their own setting. It was important for us to know that were receiving guidance from consultants with relevant experience, who understood and empathised with our challenges.

Apart from the quality audit, Peacharno provided us with guidance on how to get the best out of an Ofsted inspection as well as practical hands on training for inspirational play. Overall, we feel that Kate and Julie have helped us to re-focus on areas of our practice where we might have been coasting, whilst also providing fresh and innovative ideas for self-improvement.

Kate and her team worked with us to focus on ensuring we get the right messages across to parents in the short window of opportunity you have from a phone call, email enquiry or a show-round. Kate sent out some ‘secret shoppers’ which the nurseries found challenging but enabled us to get an insight into how parents were approached. From this the Peacharno team then developed training and further support. We all agreed that the exercise had been beneficial and the process that was introduced has helped us all to focus on the all-important sales element of the job. Only problem is she now needs to get more secret shoppers because we all know them now!

Happy Child engaged Peacharno to deliver training in 3 key areas at the annual inset training day for all staff (approximately 200 people).   Kate and her team were efficient, professional and understood what we needed to achieve.  The training was delivered within the tight timescales we had given to Peacharno and feedback from all staff was very positive.  I would not hesitate in recommending Peacharno – the team understood the boundaries in which we work, the different levels of staff understanding and capability and brought fresh ideas and energy to our annual all staff training day.
