The Old Station Nursery latest news

We were so pleased to get confirmation this afternoon that we have been awarded Millie’s Mark at both our Gloucestershire nurseries. This recognises our commitment to paediatric first aid and our whole approach to first aid. The scheme is administered by the National Day Nurseries Association on behalf of the Department for Education. We are really chuffed to receive this award for both settings and staff will continue to keep first aid at the centre of their practice and will carry out regular training.

Millie’s Mark

Millie’s Mark awarded to our Bampton nursery

November 4th, 2018 by Sarah Steel

We have just heard that our team at Bampton nursery have been awarded Millie’s Mark for excellence in paediatric first aid. For more information do have a look at www.milliesmark.com. This demonstrates that we go above and beyond the normal requirements for First Aid at a nursery and all our staff hold a paediatric first aid qualification.

We’re open at St Gabriel’s Academy, Houlton

We’re really pleased to be open and busy at our newest nursery near Rugby. Aisling and Roy already have a very busy and buzzing nursery and before and after-school club within St Gabriel’s C of E Academy at Houlton, which is just outside Rugby. The brand new school opened at the beginning of this term and the team offer sessions for pre-school children as well as to the many families who already use the school. They have made a great start and have already become an integral part of the school.

We are coming to Houlton!

We are really pleased to be opening a day nursery for 3 and 4 year olds, and a wrap-around care club for 4-11 year olds within St Gabriel’s C of E Academy at the new development in Houlton, near Rugby. The school opens in September for the first pupils, and we will be there to offer day care and before and after-school club to local families. We have just started recruiting our team, and Emma is co-ordinating all enquiries from parents and staff, so please contact her on 07952 980515 or email houlton@theoldstationnursery.co.uk if you would like to know more.  

National nursery awards winners!

November 27th, 2017 by Sarah Steel

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!
