Established in 2003, dot2dot is the UK’s leading nursery and childcare insurance specialist.

Our specifically designed policy wording is backed by the UK’s largest insurance company, Aviva.

We have a real passion for the Early Years sector and a genuine desire to help our customers succeed. To help them manage their risks each client has a dedicated account handler taking care of their unique needs. We provide tailored cover that’s comprehensive, cost-effective and gives complete peace of mind.

In 2017 & 2020, we were named ‘Schemes Broker of the Year’ at national insurance awards.  The judges commented, “Operating in a competitive market, the business managed to retain 94% of its clients and grew its book of business significantly. The business operates in partnership with its clients and has forged a series of third party relationships to truly help and assist their customers. We were impressed by the passion of the presentation and how the broker uses blogs and online content to provide a consultation on risk to their clients.”

In late 2020, we were awarded an Engage Award for our exceptional customer service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. dot2dot’s Managing Director, Jackie Hyde was named one of the twenty insurance businesswomen to watch in the EMEA region by Business Insurance Magazine.

We believe in going that extra mile for our customers, after all our mascot is ‘the bear that cares’!
