Established in 1996, the highly respected Greycoat Lumleys is a professional agency, supplying the best bespoke Childcare family solutions for their clients, applying a personalised service and this method of nurturing relationships is fundamental to their success; Kate Cranston-Stephens combined her experience as a former nanny, maternity nurse and teacher to design the first personalised course in postnatal care in 2004 and has been delivering NEST courses ever since.  

Kate and Anna Turner of Greycoat Lumleys met a few years ago and during their many conversations, always returned to one burning question, “How can we raise the profile of training so that it is seen as a vital and essential tool to have within the Childcare industry?”. We found a solution. Greycoat Lumleys proudly announce a partnership between Newborn Education Services & Training (NEST) and Greycoat Lumleys. By combining their common goals of ensuring every (non-medical) Maternity Nurse, Postnatal Carer (PNC) or Nanny - whether at the beginning, middle or end of their career - has access to a professional platform and a consistent support network, we have uncovered the solution - to nurture and guide their childcare practitioners. 

Greycoat Lumleys understands how to provide the best quality of service to their clients, underpinned by a strong understanding of an ever-changing marketplace.  

As part of Greycoat Lumleys registration process, their Childcare candidates are strongly encouraged to have ongoing training as part of their career development, we are delighted to exclusively working with NEST and look forward to a long-term partnership that will benefit our students and career professionals in the future. 

This partnership is not merely a business decision, Anna Turner was invited by NEST to join a course in Postnatal Care/non-medical Maternity Nursing so has first-hand experience of the quality of course content and course delivery. In turn, Kate Cranston-Stephens recognised the professionalism and honesty Anna Turner brought to the table, a reflection of the ethos of Greycoat Lumleys.
