Nursery World Awards 2011


The evening of 30th September was nervously anticipated by all at kidsunlimited as we waited to hear the news from our colleagues at the Lancaster Hotel, in London, where the prestigious Nursery World Awards were being held. The highlight of the evening for the kidsunlimited team was the (well deserved) award to Leanne Henderson, our Nursery Manager at the Campus Kids nursery for the University of Surrey, who won the overall prize in her category and is now officially The Nursery World Early Years Professional of 2011.

Leanne was delighted with this award both for herself and her nursery team. Speaking after the event Leanne said “I can’t believe that I’ve won this award. It is wonderful news and I would like to thank everyone at the nursery who has helped to make this possible. It adds to the many successes for the nursery this year, including our Outstanding judgement by Ofsted in April”.

The Ofsted report commented how “the leadership and management of the nursery is highly motivated and committed to continually improving nursery practice to consistently provide high quality outcomes for all children in their care. The staff have an excellent awareness of individual children’s needs and work exceptionally well together to ensure children are safe, happy and stimulated with fun, interesting activities.”

The Judges stated that in their eyes “Leanne fulfils everything that an EYP should be”.

Ros Marshall, CEO commented “We are very proud of all of these achievements, and we are delighted to see similar examples of dedication and good practice in all our nurseries. The commitment and passion of our nursery teams is worthy of celebration, and we are thrilled with the level of recognition that kidsunlimited has received across all of the categories in this year’s awards. We look forward to sharing these successes with all our employees.”
