Our MD, Sarah Steel, was today listed as one of the UK’s ‘Top 10 Influencers’ in the UK. Sarah is invited to an awards dinner at Barclays HQ in Canary Wharf next month and is delighted to have been chosen. She says, ‘I can only do the lobbying and work I do on behalf of the Early Years Sector because I have such a fantastic team within The Old Station Nursery Group. It is an honour to be chosen, and I hope it will allow me to continue to promote the interests of our sector, which is needed now, more than ever, in the current political situation, with the 30 hours offer looming on the horizon in September”.

We are delighted to have signed the lease for a new nursery at Oxford Science Park, near Kassam Stadium in Oxford. This purpose built nursery is now undergoing a major re-furbishment and will open on 3rd January. We are looking to recruit a staff team, so if you know anyone in the area, please put them in touch with us. We are also taking bookings for children from 3 months to 5 years, from tenants of the Science Park and any local families. This is a great location, with plenty of parking and drop-off room, and just on the southern ring road around Oxford, so do come and see for yourself! See Oxford Science Park news.



MD wins national Top 10 Influencer award

June 3rd, 2016 by Sarah Steel

Last night our MD, Sarah Steel, was named in Nursery Management Today Magazine’s ‘Top 10 Most Influential’ list for the Early Years sector in the UK. This was in recognition of her work for the National Day Nurseries Association and within both Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire local authorities, supporting other providers and campaigning for fair treatment of nursery businesses to allow them to deliver quality provision for children and their families. Sarah attended an impressive dinner on the 31st floor of Barclays HQ in Canary Wharf and said, ‘it is a real honour to be judged by peers and recognised as someone who works hard to promote best practice in the sector. I am lucky to have a fabulous team at The Old Station Nursery who allow me to do all the work that I do across Early Years nationally.’
