The focus was on wellbeing at Lavenders Day Nursery in Bedford as hardworking colleagues kickstarted the year with the first of their new fortnightly yoga classes.
The initiative, which is available for all colleagues at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bushmead Avenue to attend for free, is run by The Little Yoga Company and aims to promote both physical and mental wellness during the 45 minute sessions.
Taking to their yoga mats after a busy day, colleagues were able to focus on balance, posture and breathing, before ending the class with a relaxing head massage.
The latest benefit 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.
Lavenders Day Nursery Manager, Dizzie Newberry explained;
“At Lavenders, we believe that taking care of our colleagues is just as important as taking care of our little ones, which is why we’ve made the decision to introduce these sessions. We had a brilliant time at the first one, and with a relaxed mind and energized body, our team are better equipped to create a nurturing and inspiring environment for our children.”
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.
