Employee Appreciation Day at Julia Durbin

There were smiles all round at Julia Durbin Day Nursery in Headington as colleagues marked Employee Appreciation Day with a series of staff initiatives to show gratitude.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Roosevelt Drive, devoted teams were delighted to show their admiration for each other in an activity organised by Deputy Manager; Aimee Corcoran, where colleagues filled in prompts to tell each other what they valued most about them and the things they were best at, before exchanging the special messages and enjoying a selection of sweet treats during their breaks in the staff room.

The festivities follow a string of events in nursery which put talented colleagues in the spotlight, most recently celebrations for National Apprenticeship Week which honoured the youngest staff members at the setting, who are attaining their childcare qualifications through the Childbase Academy of Excellence whilst gaining practical experience in nursery.

Julia Durbin Deputy Manager, Aimee Corcoran explained;

“We are so grateful to the team for the consistent love and care they show to every child in our nursery. Their patience, creativity and unwavering support helps to shape the minds of our little ones and their tireless efforts do not go unnoticed. We are truly grateful to have such a dedicated and passionate team and we appreciate them every day of the year.”

Employee Appreciation Day was marked on the first Friday in March.
