Tiptoes Day Nurseries and Preschools was established in 2009. It has been operating for thirteen years, going from one nursery to seven. Tiptoes now employs over eighty people with four hundred and fifty places across the sites. Currently, Tiptoes are caring and developing the abilities of around six hundred children. It has gone from a small family business to a medium sized business.

Laura Morahan started her career at Tiptoes on the very first day of opening, and as a Deputy Manager at Waterside Business Park in Hessle. Within two years, Laura was the manager of the nursery. In 2016, she opened Tiptoes’ fifth nursery in Willerby- which was a larger site. She then continued in this role and in 2020 she also took on the role of Senior Nursery Manager. In this position, she began supporting and mentoring Junior Nursery Managers. Recently, Laura has taken on the new post of Nursery Director (operations). She states that ‘the most rewarding part of my job is watching our Tiptoes children blossom with confidence, whilst growing and learning.’

During her thirteen years at Tiptoes, she has advanced in her career exceptionally. As well as having two children, she hasn’t stopped going above and beyond in her career advancement. Due to having two children, she understands the difficulties of being a full-time working parent trying to balance family life and her job.

Going forward, she wants to help develop Tiptoes into the best possible childcare provision in the local area. Overall, she is on her way to achieving this goal.
