Child Dynamix

Child Dynamix (CD) is a charity that operates three nurseries in Hull and Grimsby, offering both funded and non-funded places, play sessions and parenting support groups.  In addition to providing high quality nursery provision in some of Hull and Grimsby’s most deprived communities, CD delivers a family support service in East Hull since 2005 through a contract with the local authority.  Since 2009 Child Dynamix has also delivered East Hull’s main youth service contract.

Hull has some of the highest levels of child poverty in the country. To help to overcome this, CD provides high quality, affordable nursery provision to the most deprived communities in both Hull and Grimsby. The organisation also offers family support services, manages two charity shops in East Hull, as well as a toy bank.

SASC has enabled CD to acquire a building to house a new nursery in the St Andrews ward in West Hull. The additional space will help to relieve the significant capacity gap in places for disadvantaged two year olds. Together with expanding its nursery provision, the new premises will also offer additional space for CD to expand its community services, which until now have been limited to the eastern part of the city. The property purchase is a key milestone towards CD’s long term sustainability.

SASC’s investment, combined with a grant from our partners at Power to Change, will enable CD to continue to deliver a significant positive community impact: today the charity works with 106 disadvantaged two year olds receiving early years funding, provides opportunities for 91 community volunteers each year and has over 120 employees, 88% of whom are from the local community. CD’s long term vision is to establish a high social value brand in childcare and a scalable blueprint for further expansion across the Humber sub-region.
