The Old Station Nursery latest news

We had a great celebration at our Faringdon nursery when we were awarded Millie’s Mark for our excellence in First Aid, complete with a visit from Millie the Giraffe. The children were fascinated by the visitor – even our babies, who all wanted to meet her! To find out more about Millie’s Mark do have a look at http://www.milliesmark.com

Meeting Millie!

Even more of us!

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 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.
