About Parenta

Since 1999, Parenta has grown from being a nursery website provider to becoming a specialist in all things related to childcare in the Early Years.

As well as expanding our range of nursery software products, we’re now one of the UK’s leading providers of apprenticeships in childcare – training almost 3000 learners a year to achieve their qualifications.

Our Vision

To become the training provider of choice in the childcare sector. To improve the childcare sector by delivering exceptional apprenticeship programs, developing care professionals, and impacting children's lives.

Mission Statement

To deliver a remarkable experience for our learners, staff, and our customers. Our purpose is to work together for our children.

The Parenta Story So Far...

Over the years, we’ve worked with thousands of childcare providers; giving them the tools and support they need to focus on providing great childcare.

We’re proud to work in close partnership with all our customers, so together we can provide the best possible start in life for our children.

The Parenta Trust - Our Charity

As our company has grown, we’ve been fortunate enough to give back to others through our charity, The Parenta Trust.

The Parenta Trust was set up in 2013 by Allan Presland, CEO of Parenta. His mission was to educate the youngest, most vulnerable children from deprived areas across the world by building pre-schools and providing a sponsorship programme.

"My vision is for every child to gain a quality pre-school education."           

We have managed to raise enough funds to build a new school year on year since Parenta Trust was set up.
