The Kiddies Day Nursery wins gold for Worcestershire

The Kiddies Day Nursery wins gold for Worcestershire

                     

The Kiddies Day Nursery in Kidderminster has been awarded a gold award by the Woodland Trust for getting involved in green activities including tree planting, visiting a local woodland, reducing carbon emissions and recycling.

 

The Green Tree Schools initiative, which has seen over 7,000 schools sign up since it was launched in 2008 offers the opportunity to bring the great outdoors, wildlife and green issues into the classroom.

 

Schools win awards for participating in green activities, which include tree planting, reducing carbon emissions and recycling. The Kiddies Day Nursery has visited local woods, reduced their carbon emissions and joined in various other Woodland Trust activities.

 

Karen Letten, Woodland Trust schools communications manager, added: “The scheme promotes a range of opportunities, each designed to stimulate a child’s imagination and sustain their interest in woods and trees. The achievements of the school are recognised through an awards scheme in which they receive points for taking part in activities. As they reach milestones within the project they will receive bronze, silver and finally an attractive wooden plaque which acknowledges they’ve achieved the environmental accolade of a gold award.”

 

The Woodland Trust’s vision is a UK rich in woods and trees, enjoyed by everyone. The charity is dedicated to creating new woodland with help from communities and schools, and protecting and restoring ancient woodland for future generations to cherish.

 

The Green Tree Award is free for schools to take part in, and during 2017 the Woodland Trust is also offering free packs of trees to schools. Find out how your school can get involved at woodlandtrust.org.uk/schools

Staff Member of the Month – November

Emily Webb is our Employee of the Month for November.  She was nominated by 2 parents who said…
 
“Emily has a really nice bond with my daughter.  Our baby is thriving in her care, she is caring and loving towards her.  Just knowing that our baby is so cared for gives us peace of mind for the day.  Emily takes time on collection to inform me how my daughter’s day has been.  Emily is a very polite and kind lady.”
 
“Emily has been very helpful over the past few weeks regarding my son.  She is always so happy to speak to and very informative about his activities and behaviour throughout the day.  She is honest about if he has been up to mischief and isn’t afraid to correct him which helps him understand and continue good behaviour at home.  She is very hardworking and chatty.”
 
Congratulations Emily, you will receive half a day off in recognition of your dedication.

SNOW CLOSURE 11/12/17

SNOW CLOSURE
Many thanks to those of you who have offered your understanding with regards to the struggle we faced in deciding if we would close our nursery tomorrow or not.

Many thanks to those who have advised us that your child will not be at nursery tomorrow.

Only 2 staff have said they would be able to get to nursery tomorrow, one of which is heavily pregnant.

Our priority is always to the welfare and safety of our staff and families. As we cannot guarantee this we are left with no option but to close the nursery tomorrow.

We anticipate normality returning on Tuesday.
