Tricia Wellings 1


Hi, I’m Tricia. A mother, business entrepreneur and founder of the MBK Group.

I set up my nurseries over 24 years ago to solve some of my own childcare requirements. As our nursery business flourished, and we expanded and the staff numbers increased, I noticed that good quality, relevant training services seemed to have disappeared. So I did it again! I took matters into my own hands and in 2014, we branched out into early years training and consultancy services under the name MBK.

Our aim is to help you achieve remarkable outcomes for the children you care for, your employees and your business. Using our expertise, experience and knowledge MBK will help take your business to the next level.

There are two aspects to owning and delivering a childcare provision:

1. Running the Nursery
2. Running the Business

We can support in both of these aspects. Whatever the situation, the need or the long-term goal we will work with you to achieve the outcome you are after.


We’ve helped over 500 early years providers all over the UK to grow their businesses, provide a better standard of care for their children and improve their OFSTED rating.

Training is a vital key to turning things around. Knowledge is power – when its applied effectively.

It’s great how they share new information and include you all once you have attended one of their courses which are very interesting and encouraging. The file containing all areas of Ofsted EYFS is an easy tool when training Senior Staff.

Lorraine Mitchell
Tiddlywinks Nursery School

Having the reassurance that we always have a reliable training provider to deliver several courses across the year relieves a lot of pressure on me, as a Manager. MBK are efficient and helpful, they take on board any suggestions for the content of courses, meaning they are tailored to our individual settings where possible. We are in our second year using MBK and would highly recommend.

Roundabouts Day Nursery

Tricia Visited our setting to carry out a Quality Assessment visit. The this was really positive and her extensive knowledge around the Early Years was really valued and appreciated. She worked with us to set the nursery achievable targets that were tailored to us specifically. Her suggestions only enhanced our setting further and this has proved to be an invaluable advisory experience for us all.

Manager of Orchidale Nursery
Tavernham, Norfolk

Tricia’s knowledge of Early Years and her willingness to share knowledge, sometimes freely, sometimes at a very reasonable cost has given me the confidence I need to make better decisions for our Day Nursery. Tricia’s ready responses to my questions and her style of delivery are always refreshing and I have found she always delivers what she promises.

Susan Barter
St Pauls Day Nursery

If it hadn’t been for this inspection experience then the staff would not have got to grips with the three I’s and the quality of education judgement may have been compromised. As it was the team became much more focused on how to implement the three I’s and how this affected closing gaps in children’s learning.

The visits we have had with Tricia and her team have been wonderfully informative, lots of useful information that has proven to be very practical. The visits have assisted with the continued progression of the nursery curriculum and financial stability, along with supporting our self evaluation and staff development.
