There was time for reflection at Westwood Day Nursery in Coventry as colleagues marked World Mental Health Day with a series of wellbeing initiatives and treats from managers.
Having been encouraged to come to work dressed in clothing that made them happy, practitioners from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Westwood Business Park made the time to talk and shared the things they valued most about their fellow colleagues.
As part of the occasion, colleagues were delighted to receive gifts from managers, including sweet treats and self-care items including face and foot masks to help recharge at home, whilst children explored books including ‘The Colour Monster’ to help understand emotions.
Westwood Day Nursery Manager, Lyndsey Matthews explained;
“Mental health is just as essential as physical health, and it’s crucial to address it at every age. We have the privilege of witnessing first-hand the incredible potential and resilience of young minds, and it’s our responsibility to provide a safe and supportive environment for their emotional development. Thank you to our amazing colleagues, who work tirelessly every day to create a nurturing and caring environment for the little ones in our nursery.”
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.
