Always recommended: The Success of Yellow Dot Nursery and Mount Industries
First established in 1997, Yellow Dot Nursery is a small group of 11 nurseries across the South of England, providing exceptional Early Years care for children between the ages of 4 months and 4 years. Since Yellow Dot Nursery began 18 years ago, they’ve been working closely with leading Hampshire-based disability charity Enham Trust’s Social Enterprise Mount Industries.
Mount Industries has been manufacturing quality, competitively priced furniture for over 40 years. With more than 120 designs available throughout the range, Mount Industries provides schools and businesses with a wide variety of solutions to meet their requirements; also able to accept bespoke requests.
“I chose to work with Mount Industries because I used to work at a school in Chandlers Ford so knew of them, as a local company,” explains Jane Dyke, Founder of Yellow Dot Nursery. “I really wanted to use somebody local and was impressed with the company’s community involvement.”
A valuable Social Enterprise
As a Social Enterprise of Enham Trust, Mount Industries makes a valuable contribution to the success of the charity and provides the Trust’s disabled and disadvantaged clients with sustained employment opportunities, supporting Enham Trust’s vital work; ensuring people living with disabilities can live as independently as possible.
“I was so very impressed with Mount Industries’ commitment to supporting disabled people to gain sustained employment,” Jane continues. “Working with a Social Enterprise compliments our values and I think is a ‘win-win’ for society!”
