Nursery World Awards 2016

 A bit of a change from waterproofs and wellies! :-)

A bit of a change from waterproofs and wellies! :-)

We are delighted to have won the Nursery World Awards 2016 award for Online and Social Media. We see our website and social media as more than an opportunity to tell parents about our setting. We use social media as a tool to spread the word about the incredible wonders of nature education for children and to extol the virtues of a child-led play-based muddy childhood which includes risky play. We are proud to have been recognised as working really hard on this and producing a great result!

We had a great night at the awards and were happy to spend time with so many people passionate about giving children the best experience in their early years. We may not have won nursery of the year but we don’t really mind as we know we are offering an exemplary, inspiring and wonderfully fun setting for our children.

We really enjoyed hosting judge Wendy Scott for a day in the forest and ended the day with such smiles on our faces after showing off our incredible children and team that we decided we didn't really need external validation – we are just so happy with who we are and what we do! :-)
