Once again Lisa Hurdman, the senior staff member of our Stourport Nursery has been awarded the title ‘Employee of the Month’. Parents nominating Lisa commented “Lisa is always prepared to go the extra mile”.

2009 – From Childcare to Playwork !

Half the staff qualified in Playwork !!!

 50% of staff now qualified in both Childcare and Playwork ! – what an achievement!!

Over half of the staff at The Kiddies Day Nursery have now qualified as Playworkers after taking part in the recent Government initiative enabling all Level 3 carers in early years to complete a proportion of modules from the Playwork standards to achieve this Certificate.

This is a fabulous achievement both for the staff as individuals and the nursery as a whole. When the Kids Klub is open during all school holidays and any single  school day closure, the Klub will be spoilt for choice as to what staff to use with the Kids Klub members – well done everyone !!!
