Staff Member of the Month – December

We definitely finished the year on a high, with not one, not two, but three Juice Nursery Staff Member’s of the Month, who all stood out for different reasons.

It was a bumper month for Chef, Karen Walton, who excelled once again in her culinary achievements. She has been commended for the work she has done with parents, to devise individual menus for children with severe food allergies and intolerances, as well as creating a new allergy help pack, which has been added to our Parent Lending Library.

Next is Natalie Berry, Senior in our Blue Room. An extremely proactive & creative member of our team, Nat is always willing to help and go the extra mile, when it comes to planning activities for the children in the Blue Room, as well as for wider nursery events, and which she always does with a smile on her face.

And last, but not least, Danielle Norwood was nominated for the work that she has done in her role as SENCO within the nursery, which means that she has a key role key in supporting colleagues and co-ordinating the response of the nursery to children who may have special educational needs. Danielle has approached this role with great diligence and professionalism and is doing an excellent job.

Well done, ladies – all very well deserved! A lovely end to what has been another great year here at Juice!

Ho Ho Ho, it’s the Juice Nursery Grotto!

A big thank you to all the children (and parents!) who came to Juice Nursery at the weekend to visit Santa in his grotto.

As well as seeing the big man there were lots of festive activities on hand to keep everyone entertained, including homemade glittery play dough, festive tuff spot, decorating star shaped biscuits and making some food for Santa’s reindeer, to be sprinkled on Christmas Eve, to help them find their way. Lots of festive fun :)

Thank you also to Santa’s little helpers, Natalie, Danielle, Beckie and Lesley for coming along to join in with the festive fun – we couldn’t have done it without you. x

Always full of great ideas, Tracy is extremely creative and has been praised for the fabulous way that she interacts with the children in her care.

Well done, Tracy!
