Knowle Green Day Nursery has won a prestigious Silver Eco-Schools award for their efforts to be environmentally friendly.
The Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery already held a bronze award and is thrilled to have achieved Silver.
To qualify to for the award, the nursery had to undertake a series of environmental projects demonstrating their commitment to making long term, sustainable differences.

Green initiatives which get the children involved from a young age helps to embed this learning which they will hopefully keep with them for life.”
