Meet your Presenter – Tricia Wellings

Tricia Wellings is an experienced early years expert, known within the industry for the support and training she has provided over the last 21 years.  Tricia has ‘hands on’ specialist knowledge, and is recognised for her prowess with finance and funding in the industry, having achieved a £2 million business that includes five “Bright Kids” day nurseries.

A powerful combination of knowledge and expertise that puts Tricia in an authoritative position, enabling her to put herself in the shoes of other nursery owners / businesses, truly understanding their needs and constraints in delivering their service. Tricia understands the nuances of the childcare industry, from staffing levels, safeguarding, employment law, the EYFS, Ofsted and through to managing the finances.

Tricia’s passion to help others has meant she has developed a library of training and education materials, as well as, the policies and procedures necessary to run a successful day nursery.  Tricia delivers these and other consultative services through the more recently established MBK Group.

Tricia actually embarked on a sales career, selling time share property in Spain.  She quickly advanced through the ranks, gaining unparalleled sales experience, selling vending machines before moving to sales and customer service roles in the print industry.

Tricia lives in Warwickshire with her partner and co-director Paul and their two dogs, Billy & Davie. Her two daughters Katie and Zoë both work in the business and she hopes one day they will succeed her and then she can assume the role of chair of MBK Group or even retire and explore different parts of the world.

Currently Tricia Wellings…

Owns five day nurseries called Bright Kids. Four years ago opened this training company, in order to support training their teams. The training side of things has grown rapidly and we now serve nursery and school customers across the country.

Working with other colleagues the idea of products to support practitioners came about. So three years ago Foundation Focus was created with a first product Creating your SEF and more… since then there has been 6 more useful products developed which can be viewed in their shop.

In addition to the day job, Tricia is also highly engaged as one of the PVI representatives on Worcestershire Schools Forum, she is Chair of the West Midlands Ofsted Big Conversation Steering Group, which organises the Big Conversation meetings with Ofsted and is a member of PVI support groups in Birmingham, Warwickshire & Worcestershire. Most recently she has been on the Emergency Early Years Covid-19 Task groups within these local authorities, advocating for the Early Years sector..

It’s fair to say she has a passion for all thing early years related and this is reflected in her training and consultancy work.
