Huge congratulations go to 2 of our staff team today, as they were both winners at the national Nursery Management Today awards on Saturday night. Julie Rees and Nikki Moran had both been shortlisted and interviewed at a judging day last month, and went to a Gala Dinner at the Hilton Metropole where they were both announced as winners of their categories. Julie (from our Innsworth Nursery) won Nursery Manager of the Year and Nikki (from our Faringdon Nursery) was chosen as Room Leader of the Year, for her role running a very busy pre-school room.
Judges said that they were impressed with how Nikki encouraged independence amongst the children in her room, and that Julie inspired her team and offered them outstanding training and continuous professional development opportunities. Managing Director, Sarah Steel, said, ‘It was an amazing night for The Old Station Nursery and I was thrilled for both Nikki and Julie. They work so hard every day to offer the best experiences for young children and it is really great to see this recognised nationally.’
The awards were presented by TV presenter, Ben Fogle, who congratulated them both on their success. They will both be back to work as usual this morning, but hopefully with a lot of congratulations from staff, parents and children!
