Juice Nursery – Food Hygiene Rating

We were absolutely delighted to receive official confirmation of our new and improved food hygiene rating today, taking us from ‘Good’ to “Very Good”, the highest rating that can be given, following our recent inspection!!

A BIG shout out goes to our fabulous Juice Nursery kitchen staff, Karen & Rachel for all their hard work, which has resulted in our receiving this rating and for doing such an excellent job! Well done!

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Our Juice Nursery Preschoolers had a great adventure yesterday, travelling by tram – a great source of great excitement, quite apart from anything else! – into Manchester’s China Town, where they enjoyed visiting a Chinese supermarket, buying items from their preprepared shopping list, as well as visiting a Chinese restaurant where they all enjoyed a slap up buffet lunch!

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Healthy Living Festival

We had a great time yesterday, when we took part in Altrincham’s Healthy Living Festival! We were based in the Family Zone, based in Art with a Heart, right in the town centre, who reckoned that a whopping 870 visitors visited the zone throughout the course of the day! Lots of healthy fun was to be had, and it was fabulous to see so many lovely people visit our Juice Nursery activity area – the homemade play dough & sensory rice was a definite hit!! Thanks to all the organisers for doing such a great job arranging a fabulous family event! Here’s to next year!!

Have A Heart

A BIG BIG shout out to everyone who supported us as the children all took part in our’Have A Heart’ fundraiser yesterday.

Kathy and Caroline from Stretch-n-Grow Altrincham & Sale put our Juice Nursery Superheroes through their paces, and oversaw the children, who all successfully completed their obstacle courses! Apart from having a fabulous time, we have, to date raised over £740 (and counting!!!) for our appeal, to raise funds to buy a portable defibrillaor, or AED, which we hope to position outside our building so that, in case of emergency, members of the general public as well as the nursery, might benefit from this potentially life saving piece of equipment.

Thank you very very much to everyone who has donated! For more information or to donate please contact sarah@juicenursery.com

Operation Christmas Child

It was lovely to hear from Operation Christmas Child this week, who got in touch to let us know that the 36 shoeboxes that our Juice Nursery staff, children and parents filled just before Christmas, were in amongst the 56,659 that were delivered from the UK to children in Zambia.

Through these shoebox gifts we have been able to show children around the world, living in difficult situations, that they are loved and not forgotten. Many of these children will never have received a gift in their life before.

Thanks once again to all of you who filled a shoebox, and here’s to sending 50 this year! :)

Food Glorious Food!

Just writing about our Juice Nursery Preschool’s trip to Altrincham Market’s Honest Crust pizza today is making us hungry! Following their current ‘Food’ theme, the children of the Green Room went to vist Richard at Honest Crust to find out just how to make pizza, what kind of ingredients he uses, as well as the processes he goes through to create truly yummy pizzas! Not only did the children get to watch Richard in action, but also were able to sample the finished product too for lunch! Deeeeelicious!!

A massive shout out goes to everyone at Honest Crust for making us feel so welcome – it was brilliant!!
