Staff Members of the Month – September

September saw us award not one, but two shining stars, as our Juice Nursery Staff Members of the Month. Congratulations to Somayya Keff in our Blue Room, who was nominated by her colleagues for going the extra mile to support her key children and to Kate Cartledge in Green Room, who delivered a recent training session to staff around Quality of Teaching – how to be an outstanding practitioner.
Well done to both of you, very well deserved!

Healthy Setting Award Reconfirmed

We are delighted to share with you confirmation of Juice Nursery’s continued status as a Trafford Early Year’s  Healthy Setting, following a review of our setting and practice over the summer, which focused on our approach to healthy eating, health & safety, physical play activity and emotional wellbeing.  Clearly, we are delighted to receive this award and wanted to take this opportunity to give all of our staff a big shout out.  Achieving this is recognition of their efforts and the fantastic work that they do to promote the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Following the closure of Orbit, we have been testing alternative software providers and, are pleased to confirm that, going forward, we will be using eyLog, which we believe will provide us with an even better tool to log and share children’s learning journeys and development.  This includes our being able to upload audio & video clips, as well as photographs which parents will be able to comment upon. We are able to upload multiple photos and group observations, highlighting the range of activities the children are involved in day to day, and showing more fully the interaction that they enjoy with friends, so fundamental to their development, as outlined in the EYFS.
