Islington Childcare Trust (ICCT) is an umbrella organisation supporting community nurseries in Islington by providing early years expertise and business support. We also deliver accredited childcare training and family support initiatives. We have an Ofsted registered crèche on site to support our training courses.
The trust also delivers the Mobile Creche an initiative supported by the LDA and LBI a providing quality mobile crèche to support training and events across Islington at 11 Ofsted registered sites. We are involved in strategic planning within the borough, with representation on a variety of forums and boards. We aim to raise the profile of the voluntary sector and to ensure that all the families and children in Islington have access to quality and affordable childcare.
Our Business Support services are aligned to support not only childcare practitioners but the management committees as well. This includes financial planning, marketing, staff recruitment & retention and charity and employment law. We also provide training, support and advocacy around the new commissioning processes and transition into becoming a Children’s Centre.
