Celebrating 25 years of service at Meadow View

There was cause for celebration at Meadow View Day Nursery in Newport Pagnell as the team of Early Years professionals honoured their beloved colleague and Nursery Practitioner, Kay Foulger as she marked her milestone 25–year anniversary at the setting.

Having started at the Westbury Lane setting in 1999, Kay has helped to positively shape the lives of hundreds of children throughout her career, as well as providing expert mentorship to staff and serving as Partnership Councillor at the nursery, representing the interests of colleagues and putting forward ideas to drive change at the employee-owned company. 

Raising money for worthy causes has also been integral to Kay’s time at Meadow View, taking part in countless fundraising ventures including tandem skydives and nights sleeping rough outside, contributing to the three million plus total raised by Childbase Partnership over the past 30 years for charities including Mind, Bliss and Alzheimer’s Society.

In order to celebrate her incredible quarter-century childcare career, Kay was presented with gifts and bouquets of flowers, as well as receiving a tax-free bonus reward payment and an extra paid week of annual leave, as well as being treated to lunch by her adoring colleagues whilst reminiscing over favourite memories from the past 25 years at Meadow View.

Nursery Practitioner, Kay Foulger explained;

“I am hugely proud to be celebrating 25 years at Meadow View and feel very lucky to be part of such a special team of people. It’s been a privilege to watch the children in our care grow up and even return with their own children, or come to work alongside us at the nursery. I have loved being part of all the events and making lifelong friends with my work colleagues.”

Meadow View Day Nursery Manager, Danielle Wright explained;

“Through her unwavering commitment, passion and expertise, Kay has continually proven to be an irreplaceable asset to our team and the families she has impacted over the years. This milestone anniversary is a testament to Kay’s incredible character and commitment to the profession, she has helped foster a sense of community amongst us, always leading by example and embracing each challenge with grace and determination.”
