Maples Day Nursery celebrate lockdown heroes with award ceremony

To mark one year since the first Covid lockdown, children from Maples Day Nursery in Winchester were delighted to dress up as superheroes to honour the inspirational people who had made a difference throughout the pandemic.

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Hatherley Road, pre-schoolers marked the anniversary with a range of activities, including role playing as nurses and shop keepers, whilst hardworking practitioners were celebrated with a special awards ceremony to credit their achievements, with accolades including ‘Most Creative’, ‘Parent’s Choice’ and ‘Giving 100%’.

Maples Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Lou Rowe explained;

“We have had a brilliant time celebrating all the amazing key workers and individuals who have shown such kindness and bravery during the past year. The children’s costumes were fantastic and it was wonderful to shine a spotlight on our wonderful colleagues, who have worked so hard.” 

Using money from its ‘Charity Support Fund’, which is in place to help worthy causes away from fundraising partner ‘Cancer Research UK’, Childbase Partnership is also making a donation to ‘Duty to Care’, a charity which supports the wellbeing of healthcare professionals.
