PNE Enterprise business nominated for prestigious award

The Baby Hub

A mumpreneur supported by PNE Enterprise has been nominated for a prestigious national children’s award.

Jenna Davy, who has two children, Seb and Felicity, received the nomination for her work setting up The Baby Hub music, movement and sensory classes.

This week it was announced Jenna has been nominated for a ‘What’s On 4 Kids’ awards, which celebrate the UK’s best activities, class leaders, party providers, places and activity-based products for children.

The Baby Hub allows parents and carers to spend quality time with their little ones and each other through weekly music, movement and sensory play classes.

Jenna initially set the classes up after the birth of her son in 2013, with support from her husband Chris, PNE Enterprise, Plainsight consultancy and facebook groups including groups of like-minded business women.

She said: “It was going to baby classes myself that got me out the house with Seb when he was little. I realised just how powerful spending dedicated time with my son could be and saw a huge difference in his sociability and development. I wanted to be able to offer that support to others, hence setting up the classes. I saw the benefits for myself in terms of sharing experiences with others and for my son.”

Jenna, who works as a Learning and Development Business Partner part time as well added, “I wanted to design a professionally delivered programme focused on learning through play, where parents had the chance to socialise and feel comfortable.”

The Baby Hub is nominated in the Best Independent Activity for Under 5s – North Category. This means Jenna is now through to the national voting stage.

Jenna added: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be nominated for the award for my work with The Baby Hub. It’s been a huge achievement for me to see it grow over time.”

“Setting up a new business is no mean feat when you have little ones, but I’d definitely encourage other mums to think about setting up on their own. I want to provide an opportunity for mums to do just that by offering licences with The Baby Hub to enable them to run their own business. There is the option to gain a worklife balance (I get to spend more quality time with my children), gain a great income and work in a rewarding environment – but without starting from scratch like I did, as you are joining an established and expanding brand with on-going support.”

More than 100,000 votes are anticipated this year and voting closes on July 3, 2017.

The winners will be announced on October 4 in London. Best of luck Jenna, we’re routing for you!
