David Wright, together with his wife Anna, runs Paint Pots nurseries in Southampton. Their son Joseph has recently joined the family business. Paint Pots comprises 7 settings – 5 day nurseries, 2 preschools. Their motto is ‘Love, Laughter and Learning.’
David has already had a successful and substantial career in IT, before entering into the childcare business. Together with his wife Anna they set up Paint Pots Day Nursery after Anna’s pre-school outgrew their house.
Here David discusses his philosophy that “boys and girls need men and women”. He also has some marvellous tips on encouraging men into the setting – including Pirates!
