From Basecamp Director Lucie Murphy


I’ve been the Director of Basecamp since we began in 2022, but first and foremost I’m a mum of two daughters, so I really understand how important it is for parents and carers to have reliable childcare in place, and certainty that their child(ren) are safe, happy and well looked after, and this is what we offer at Basecamp, where we're passionate about play and serious about fun!

Available before and after school and during school holidays, Basecamp childcare is provided by our experienced and enthusiastic teams of childcare professionals, who take a child-led approach at our safe and secure settings at The Bridge and South Rise Primary School, where children have the freedom to play, rest, read, explore, be creative, and in term time start and finish their school day with freshly prepared nutritious breakfasts, snacks and teas.  

With Basecamp Childcare parents and carers can be confident that their child(ren) will enjoy the time they spend with us, that we'll do as much as we can to accommodate parents' and carers' requirements with flexible booking options, and because we're a childcare provider with purpose, offer more affordable fees because we operate without any commercial aims.

What this means is that, unlike a typical provider, Basecamp has a financial model which gives partner schools an additional revenue stream to invest in positive outcomes for their children. 

If you're a parent or carer who'd like to discuss your childcare arrangements, or to visit Basecamp to see us in action at The Bridge or at South Rise, then I’d love to hear from you so please do get in touch- I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,
