Despite being labelled as the ‘the gloomiest day of the year’, there were smiles all round at Lime Grove Day Nursery in Hemel Hempstead as colleagues enjoyed a series of ‘Blue Monday’ inspired wellbeing celebrations at the setting.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Park Road, staff pulled out all the stops as they wore their brightest clothing to work, before enjoying a special ‘Rainbow’ themed buffet spread for lunch complete with exotic fruit platters, vibrant crudité trays and colourful cakes, providing the perfect antidote to the Monday blues.
The latest celebration in nursery follows a tax-free bonus of up to £3,000 for each colleague and a pay rise in December, recognising them all as employee-owners of Childbase Partnership, which has a total of 44 Early Years settings across England.
Lime Grove Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Yasmin Diver explained;
“We had a brilliant Blue Monday and thought what better way to feel good than eat good. We feel so lucky to work with such a passionate team who continue to deliver exceptional childcare every single day and endeavour to showcase this gratitude every day.”
‘Blue Monday’ is marked on the third Monday of January every year.
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.
