We are celebrating our 10th anniversary
It has been an incredible decade at Little Nightingales and I am delighted that so many children, parents, family and friends will be joining us on July 1st to celebrate at the 10th anniversary party!
When we opened in April 2007 there were just 13 children and seven members of staff. Today I am so proud to be responsible for and work with a fabulous team of 15 staff, caring for and educating 73 little-ones! Over the past 10 years that amounts to caring for about 300 children and, as a result, building close relationships with 300 families.
There are two wonderful people I owe a great deal to. I would like to give a huge thank-you to our loyal administration manager, Sally Shields, who has been with me from day one. It has also been a joy to watch my daughter, Marilyn, take over as manager. They work tirelessly with the dedicated Little Nightingales team to make the nursery a great place for staff and children alike.
Over the past 10 years I have met so many wonderful business people and members of the local community, who have supported us and who we have worked with. Too numerous to mention individually but my thanks goes out to you all.
Every day we strive to provide a happy, nurturing environment where parents can trust us with their precious offspring and this is borne out in consistently “Good” Ofsted outcomes and our Early Years Quality Standard Gold award. However, we do not rest on our laurels and there are plans for introducing further improvements to make Little Nightingales a nursery which showcases best practice in pre-school care and education
Lastly, I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support,
