Mel Hart, who owns both nurseries, said: “I am really proud of the award.

“The early years sector at the moment is a really hard sector to be in, so to get an award is just really great.

“What I particularly like about the Day Nursery awards is that it's all from reviews from parents, so it really shows they know us.

“They know what we do, they see us every day, that means much more.”

Albion House Day Nursery manager Lizzy Soper is also celebrating the award.
She said: “Our team works incredibly hard to provide the best start for our little ones and offer support to our families.

“We have adopted a Hygge ethos, which focuses on warmth, cosiness and kindness, and allows us to put the wellbeing of our staff, families and children at the forefront of everything we do.

“We have a staff positivity board, offer yoga for the staff and practice yoga and mindfulness with the children.

“We appreciate the importance of work/life balance and believe in a relaxed approach, encouraging children to explore open ended and natural resources, with huge emphasis on outdoor play.

“Our children grow to be resilient and independent learners, ready for the next chapter in their lives, when they move onto school.

“We are all very proud of what we do, and that this is recognised by our wonderful families who have written such lovely and kind reviews, to contribute to winning this award.”
