The Mothercare and Early Learning Centre brands are synonymous with children and parenting. Both brands carry with them a reputation for specialism, quality, safety and innovation in providing products and services for mothers, mothers-to-be, babies and young children. Both brands are passionate about their commitment to offering customers a multi-channel shopping environment through retail stores, catalogues and the internet, so that parents can meet the needs and aspirations for their children, worldwide.
Mothercare is a specialist retailer of products for mothers-to-be, babies and children up to the age of eight. We opened our first store in 1961 in Surrey. Initially the business focused on pushchairs, nursery furniture and maternity clothing, but soon expanded our range to include clothing for children up to the age of five and later up to the age of eight.
We now offer a wide range of maternity and children's clothing, furniture and home furnishings, bedding, feeding, bathing, travel equipment and toys through our retail stores and online in the United Kingdom, and also operate internationally through franchises in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Far East under the 'Mothercare' brand name.
In June 2007, the group acquired Chelsea Stores Holdings Limited, the owner of the Early Learning Centre (ELC) brand.
