Juice Nursery awarded a Millie’s Mark!

We are very proud to have been awarded a Millie’s Mark by the NDNA – National Day Nurseries Association, in association with the Department for Education and Millie’s Trust

Achieving a Millie’s Mark means that we are a setting that goes over and above current requirements in terms of what we do to keep children safe, as detailed in the EYFS, aspiring to achieve excellence in terms of first aid.

All our staff have undergone paediatric first aid training, but also as a setting we have demonstrated that we have reflected on our practice to ensure that there we have tight processes and documentation in place and that our staff are competent and feel confident to apply paediatric first aid practically.

This has been a 6 month process for us, and has seen our entire team working together and we are very proud that our efforts have been acknowledged and endorsed through this very special reward.

Rest assured our focus on continuously developing our quality care and education will not stop here…watch this space for more on our First Aid Workshop for our Juice Nursery parents, coming soon!

July Staff Member of the Month

A big shout out to Rachel Girdlestone, our Housekeeper, who was our Juice Nursery July Staff Member of the Month.

An unsung hero of the nursery, this recognition is a very well deserved acknowledgement of all the hard work that Rachel does to keep the nursery running efficiently on a daily basis.

Rachel is proactive, a real team player, constantly going above and beyond. Well done, Rachel!

Marvin the Mini

Bit of a treat for our Juice Nursery Preschoolers today, as Louise Crowther, author of new children’s book,’Marvin’s Seaside Adventures’ came in to visit to our Green Room.

Marvin is a rusty old Mini who has sat neglected on a country garage forecourt for many years, never getting a second glance and certainly never loved or cared for. His one treat is his weekly trip to the car wash – but on one visit, something rather extraordinary happens. Instead of emerging as a slightly cleaner version of his battered old self, he is magically transformed into what he once was: a beautiful, shiny red car. The car wash takes him to a new adventure, and he finds himself on a sunny sea front. He meets a young lifeboat named Larry, and the two quickly become firm friends. But during his time at the seaside, Larry gets into trouble out at sea after showing off!

Will Marvin be able to save the day?
