This episode asks entrepreneur, founder and managing director of one of the South’s leading award-winning chains of children’s nurseries, Tops Day Nurseries and Aspire Training what she expects from her suppliers. Cheryl’s sustainability journey began several years ago, in part to meet legislation yes – but, more importantly for her, to meet her own personal ethical standards. Her journey, she describes, is a partnership between her and her customers…the children and the parents.
