Despite being labelled as the ‘the gloomiest day of the year’, there were smiles all round at Brinds Well Day Nursery in Chelsfield as colleagues enjoyed a series of ‘Blue Monday’ inspired wellbeing celebrations at the setting.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Hawstead Lane, staff were delighted to be greeted by a blue themed pamper gift each as they came into work, including face mask sheets and bath soaks, as well as a selection of sweet treats to enjoy throughout the day.
As part of the festivities, colleagues were also able to take part in a meditation activity and yoga sessions in small groups at lunchtime, with the mindfulness exercises proving to be the perfect antidote to the Monday blues, courtesy of their grateful management team.
The latest celebration in nursery follows a tax-free bonus of up to £3,000 for each colleague and a pay rise in December, recognising them all as employee-owners of Childbase Partnership, which has a total of 44 Early Years settings across England.
Brinds Well Day Nursery Manager, Vanessa Lawrence explained;
“The Blue Monday festivities were a great success and provided another lovely morale boost to our very deserving colleagues. We feel so lucky to work with such a passionate team who continue to deliver exceptional childcare every single day and believe it’s more important than ever to showcase this gratitude.”
‘Blue Monday’ is marked on the third Monday of January each year.
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
