Celebrating 20 years of service at Brinds Well Day Nursery
There was cause for celebration at Brinds Well Day Nursery in Orpington as the proud childcare team honoured their beloved colleague, Claire Couldridge, as she marked her milestone 20 year anniversary at the award-winning setting.
Having been at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Hawstead Lane since the day it opened its doors, Claire, who is a Nursery Practitioner and Housekeeper, has helped to positively shape the lives of hundreds of children who have attended the setting, as well as taking part in countless fundraising ventures, contributing to the £30million total raised by Childbase Partnership for charity in the past 30 years.
As well as being presented with flowers and presents to mark the special occasion, colleagues arranged games and goodies as part of the celebrations for Claire, before reminiscing over the highlights of her past two decades at the nursery.
Discussing the incredible career milestone, Claire explained;
“I started at Cannock House back in 2001, before the nursery became Brinds Well. Childbase were so supportive from day one and since then the time has flown by – 20 years later and I can’t see myself leaving until retirement. I’ve enjoyed my time here so much and really love the company. I feel incredibly happy and love my job.”
Brinds Well Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Vanessa Lawrence explained;
“Claire has been our diamond. She is such a helpful, kind and happy lady who will always go out of her way to support others. We can’t thank her enough for all she does and hope she enjoys the festivities as she truly deserves to be celebrated.”
