Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone at Juice Nursery who so very kindly bought gifts, toys, clothes, toiletries, wrapping paper and food in support of our appeal to donate to Wood Street Mission, who seek to support families in our area who are struggling to make ends meet this Christmas.

We were simply blown away by the number of donations we have received and want to thank you so very much for helping spread a little love this Christmas time.

In addition to our collection we also ran a raffle, raising funds for the charity. So, a BIG shout out to everyone who supported our raffle, either buying tickets, or for generously donating prizes. We raised a magnificent £108 and would like to thank you once again for your support – we really do appreciate it

Staff Members of the Month – October

It’s a double shout out this time round, for our Juice Nursery October Staff Member’s of the Month, Natalie Berry and Danielle Norwood.

As well as doing a great job, planning and preparing the nursery for next week’s World Rhyme Week, the ever-resourceful Nat, has been a very busy bee, up cycling resources that she has found whilst out and about for the Blue Room, including sourcing cable drums from local builders to create play tables and asking the local council workers, chopping down a tree outside nursery for some tree trunk log, for our garden!

Danielle continues to shine in her role of Safeguarding Officer, recently preparing for and presenting a Safeguarding Refresher session at a recent staff meeting, which she did with great knowledge and professionalism.

Staff Member of the Month – September

Congratulations to Katie Worsley, our Juice Nursery September Staff Member of the Month.

Katie receives this award for her proactivity and for consistently coming up with good ideas and thinking outside the box, both within her room and also as our Deputy Manager.

Well done, Katie, this is really well deserved!

Staff Members of the Month!

A big shout out to two members of our Juice Nursery team, who have both stood out for going the extra mile.

BIG congratulations to Danielle Norwood and Becky Jones, who are our latest Staff Members of the Month.
Based in our Pink Room, Becky has been full of ideas that are of benefit the wider nursery. Not only did she suggest we get involved in the National Children’s Food Festival Week, but Becky also came up with the idea of running a basic First Aid activity session with our outgoing Preschool class, which was a great success and a fabulous idea. Well done, Becky.

Danielle has been on fire recently, not only working on updating and refining our Policies and Procedures to ensure we maintain our high standards, but has also suggested various ideas, encouraging us to reflect on our practice, which is vital to our ensuring that we continue to be an Outstanding nursery.

STOP PRESS…!

We are delighted to be able to share with you that, from 1 July, Juice Nursery are now the proud owners of the premises that we occupy within The Old Town Hall.

This is a huge investment for us but we are certain that it is the right one for the long term success of the nursery, and we are very excited to have made the decision.

Whilst you won’t necessarily see any immediate differences, this will have a very positive impact on the nursery in a number of ways, giving us much greater control over further investment decisions over the next few years, as well as how the nursery rooms might look and feel.

Thank you to all our parents and staff for their continued support – clearly, we couldn’t do it without you!!

Staff Member of the Month – June

Fast becoming indispensable, congratulations go to Emma Sarwar, our Administrative Assistant, who was nominated by several people as our Juice Nursery Staff Member of the Month in June.

Always happy to help, with a smile on her face, Emma really stood out this month and well deserves this award.

Well done, Emma – we really appreciate all you have done!

Family fun, down on the farm!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the lovely parents, children and staff who came and supported our Juice Nursery Family Fun Day at Red House Farm.

Great fun was had by all, we raised £175 from our ticket sales, which has been donated to Harry and Jock’s Appeal AND what’s more the sun even shone…. we couldn’t have asked for more!

A big shout out to Jonny and his team at Red House for all that they did to help the afternoon run smoothly…. the barrel train in particular was a massive hit with the children (and a few parents too!)

Same time next year??!
