Here’s to the next 10 years!

As you may already know, here at Juice Nursery, we have been celebrating our 10th anniversary since opening, and what a 10 years it has been!

It has been a lot of hard work but we are extremely proud of our nursery, the service that we provide to the families that entrust their children to us – which we believe to be truly Outstanding – and most of all to our team of staff, without whom none of this would be possible.

We believe that our continued success can, in no small part, be attributed to having such a strong team of dedicated and motivated staff, who have a passion for what they do, and are keen to grow and develop with us, as the nursery continues to evolve.

In an ever changing world, we are very proud that a good number of our staff, who joined the team at the very beginning, are still with us – including our Nursery Manager, Lesley Wilson, pictured here with Julie Round and Kim Starkie, who were also amongst the original team all those years ago. So, as we look back over the past 10 years and look forward to the next, we want to say a massive thank you to all our hardworking members of staff, who work hard every day to ensure that we are the best that we can be.

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!

Staff Member of the Month – June

Rather than single out one member of our team as our Juice Nursery Staff Member of the Month for June, we wanted to recognise our entire team, saying a BIG thank you to everyone, for all that they have done recently getting ready for Parent’s Evening and working together during what is always our busiest time of year.

To say thank you, we are treating them all to a yummy Honest Crust Wood Fired Pizza on us. Enjoy!

Staff Member of the Month – April

Congratulations to Sarah Abbey, our Juice Nursery April Staff Member of the Month, who has been extremely on the ball and proactive, suggesting a number of ideas and initiatives that we have taken on board and implemented, including adding first aid prompt cards to each room and introducing new paperwork to the Purple Room for parents to complete if their child’s routine has changed in anyway.

Well done, Sarah… keep those ideas coming!!

Staff Member of the Month – February

A big Juice Nursery shout out to Tracy Poole, who was named our Staff Member of the Month for February.

Always proactive and a real team player, Tracy recently put herself forward to be our Physical Development Champion and has already made great progress reorganising the garden, and is brimming with ideas around developing and enhancing our physical development programmes and practice to further benefit the children here at Juice.  Well done, Tracy!

Staff Members of the Month – January


Well, January was a bumper month, with us naming not one, but two members of our team – Danielle Norwood and Rebecca Jones – as our Juice Nursery Staff Members of the Month, who receive this as a result of their proactivity and enthusiasm, introducing ideas such as Stay & Play sessions, a new Blog for parents in our Pink & Purple Rooms to name but two!

Well done, ladies…keep those ideas coming!!
