MBK provides nursery and early years training and consultancy services throughout the UK. We come from a wealth of early years experience and all work in nursery settings. We know how much hard work and dedication it takes to provide outstanding care and run a profitable and sustainable business.

With over 24 years of early years experience running our own successful nurseries as well as in-depth knowledge of current Ofsted, Government and legal requirements, MBK will provide you with Ofsted help, early years consultancy, scheduled and bespoke training services that will have a positive impact on your own early years setting.


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.

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

Tricia has supported me individually as well as my managers to grow into the roles they have. Tricia has given me faith in my own ability when it wasn’t so great. She has helped me to have the confidence to take my business to the next level.

Why did I choose Tricia? Well, no one else would put up with me, or tell me the truth about things even if I didn’t want to hear it! I have been told we are quite similar (bit of the marmite factor) and perhaps that is why it has worked so well. She has been a peacemaker and a support, a sounding board, but most important to me a confidant when others had let me down. We have also used MBK for training and the courses have all been really good.

Little Rascals Childcare

The implementation of the 30 hours was a minefield. with the help of MBK on the 30 hours, all was made a lot clearer and we were shown how it could work for us, if we implemented it in the right way with the right wording.

I was surprised by the excellence of the courses attended but was also very impressed with the aftercare received in supporting documentation and advice including a private Facebook page for those who had attended the 30 hour workshop.

I chose Tricia knowing that she has a lot of experience and expertise in Early Years, is directly involved in Early Years owning her own settings, and campaigns hard for early years providers. This made the choice easy as I felt she understood the sector better than other training providers who maybe had never worked in the industry. The course was relevant and up to date and informative.

I have recommended Tricia to other providers and always say that the courses I have accessed are excellently delivered and have relevant content.

Coppice Childcare

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.

Following a surprising and devastating Ofsted inspection result we received a flyer from MBK through the post which offered sympathy and understanding to settings that had been downgraded.
I don't usually respond to flyers or marketing but there was something about MBK which caught my attention. I followed it up and received excellent customer service and was directed quickly to their Ofsted expert, Emma, who subsequently visited and completed an audit. We have now received full staff training and follow up visits and I feel that our team can now confidently articulate how we are implementing the EYFS for all of our children and will no long feel intimidated when Ofsted return. MBK have been professional throughout and Emma is especially dynamic, extremely knowledgeable and a great trainer. Ofsted re-inspected in May 2023 and whilst the report is yet to be published we are happy with the result and plan to have MBK in on a regular basis to support our professional development,

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.
