Devonshire colleagues beat the Monday blues

Despite being labelled as the ‘the gloomiest day of the year’, there were smiles all round at Devonshire Day Nursery in Chiswick as colleagues reinvented ‘Blue Monday’.

Dressed in everything but blue, devoted staff teams from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bennett Street were delighted to share the things that brought them the most joy, before tucking into an array of sweet treats, including a special hot chocolate making station.

The latest celebration in nursery follows a new company wellbeing initiative launched in January, giving each colleague the potential to earn up to 20 extra days of paid leave throughout 2024, based on attendance, to help improve and enhance work-life balance.

Devonshire Day Nursery Team Leader, Joshua Elliott explained;

“We are incredibly lucky to have such an enthusiastic team that makes sure there are Blue Mondays. Their infectious spirit and passion for giving our children the best care and education makes coming to work exciting every day, and we had a great time celebrating.”

‘Blue Monday’ is marked on the third Monday of January every year.
