Sharing a birthday with the
NHS, the pioneering Sandfield Day Nursery in Oxford pulled out all the stops
with balloons and cake to celebrate 30 years since they opened their doors to
generations of pre-school children.
‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, Sandfield Day Nursery in Headington, was the first
nursery created in partnership with a hospital trust and the forerunner to
other Childbase Partnership day nurseries supporting NHS workers on hospital
The award-winning staff team
put a large banner outside their nursery in Sandfield Road congratulating John
Radcliffe Hospital workers on the 75th birthday of the
Manager Kim Hambridge, who
has 28 years at the nursery, said:
“I am so incredibly proud of everything we’ve achieved over the years. We are thrilled to be celebrating this anniversary, just a couple of weeks after winning Nursery of the Year at our annual company awards.
The team go above and beyond
for our families every single day and are entirely devoted to providing
outstanding childcare. It’s an honour to work with such passionate people, and
watch our children continue to flourish as a result.”
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.
