People who help us!

Our January theme in preschool was ‘people who help us’ and the children had an action-packed time welcoming lots of visitors over the course of the month. Not only were they lucky enough to be visited by a doctor, who brought her doctor’s bag with her, but also the police, who locked the children up in the back of their police van (only briefly we might add!); firefighters from Altrincham’s Blue Watch, who parked their fire engine in our car park, which caused huge excitement, and last but not least, dentist Dr Mark Fryar, pictured, from Crescent Dental in Hale, who came to talk to the children about how important their teeth are. We couldn’t agree more!

Staff Member of the Month – January

Tanitiah Gibson, Chef here at Juice Nursery, is our most recent shining star, and as such was named as our Staff Member of the Month in January. This possibly meant all the more as Tanitiah was nominated by her peers, in recognition of all the hard work that she has put in over the past few months, when she was promoted to Chef, taking over responsibility for all of the food preparation in our kitchen. In addition, in December, as well as her usual duties, Tanitiah baked extra biscuits for our Christmas Grotto event, and also rustled up a gorgeous Christmas Dinner for all the children in nursery, as well as 25 members of staff! In our book that deserves the award by itself!!

Staff Member of the Month – December

And congratulations go to Alex Chiorando, our very own Juice Nursery pre-school teacher, who was our December Staff Member of the Month. Although Alex has only been with us 3 months she has already made a huge & very positive impact on the nursery. As well as vast experience, her enthusiasm for her role, & the children in her care, is infectious! In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Alex has volunteered to take on additional projects in her own time, such as implementing Orbit, a new software package which we will use to record & assess children’s development, and will benefit the nursery as a whole. A complete asset to our team, this award is really well-deserved
