The spotlight was on wellbeing at Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines as colleagues marked World Mental Health Day with a series of celebrations at the setting.
At the award-winning setting on Knowle Green, the devoted staff team were each surprised with bespoke gift bags, filled with presents including personalised mugs with their names, pamper items including face masks, sweet treats and positive affirmations to inspire, whilst Deputy Manager, Chelsea Basley held an individual ‘chat and chomp session’ where colleagues could drop in and talk about anything they desired, no matter how big or small.
Knowle Green Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Chelsea Basley explained;
“World Mental Health Day provided a brilliant opportunity to remind ourselves of the small steps we can take to improve the wellbeing of ourselves and those around us. We always strive to show our colleagues how much they mean to us and how much we appreciate the incredible work they do, as well as open up the dialogue on this important topic.”
Other recent wellbeing initiatives have included a ‘Wonderland’ themed festival and awards ceremony for all Childbase Partnership colleagues, with entertainment provided Basement Jaxx, Scouting for Girls, Tinchy Stryder and Fatman Scoop, free family tickets to the UK’s top theme parks and attractions, as well as two salary increases within 12 months.
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.
