Important member update

We are currently undergoing a major transformation of our customer support systems. This involves a significant upgrade which is currently affecting some of our communication channels with you. We apologise for this disruption and know that it is creating some delay in providing the usual level of support to you.

Every enquiry is important to us and we remain committed to being here for you over this transitional period.

You can still contact us in a number of ways;

Thank you for your continued support and patience.

Why do you need insurance?

In even the best-run childcare provision, accidents can happen and problems can arise.

You need insurance to protect your setting if: a member of staff or volunteer makes a claim for injury, a child is hurt, your property is damaged, you're a victim of theft or property belonging to another person is damaged.

Alliance insurance has supported nurseries, childminders and all early years providers for over 50 years.

Choosing Alliance insurance gives you the peace of mind to operate successfully in the knowledge your business is protected.

We work in partnership with Royal & Sun Alliance (RSA) to provide a suite of insurance packages tailored to you.

The cover is constantly reviewed by our team and updated by RSA to ensure we offer the widest protection at competitive rates. 

And we can be flexible and amend or extend our cover bandings to meet your individual setting's circumstances and requirements.

What's more, we offer monthly Direct Debit to spread the cost.

"It’s so nice to have everything in one place — the Alliance offered free advice about accepting a child with very complex needs into my setting. Then they forwarded my information to their Insurance team who could talk to me about the additional requirements necessary to accept this child. I didn't have to explain everything twice. This made everything a lot simpler."
