Devoted childcare professionals from Meadow View Day Nursery in Newport Pagnell have been celebrated by their proud managers as part of festivities for the fourth annual ‘National Nursery Practitioner Day’.
The occasion, which looks to honour the hard work and dedication of those in the Early Years sector, has been marked by colleagues from the award-winning Childbase Partnership setting on Westbury Lane who enjoyed a team lunch, consisting of platters of Subway sandwiches and sweet treats by way of appreciation.
From bidding farewell to another cohort of pre-schoolers as they transition to school, to raising vital funds for Cancer Research UK through a variety of fundraising initiatives including sponsored walks and a mini Olympics, colleagues reflected upon their accomplishments from over the past year as part of the special day.
Meadow View Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Jen Curley explained;
“Our National Nursery Practitioner Day celebrations were a great success and this provided a lovely morale boost to our team who have worked so hard over the past year. We are hugely proud of the example they set to the children and the exceptional service they continue to provide to our nursery families.”
In addition to bonuses for employees working throughout lockdown and a tax-free Partnership Dividend payment of up to £1,000 each, the company have recently held a series of virtual wellbeing events, from awards ceremony with musical performances by ‘Scouting For Girls’, to virtual bingo nights and yoga sessions to maintain connections and boost morale.
National Nursery Practitioner Day is celebrated on 18th October 2021.
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.
