Award-winning nursery trying for fresh plaudit


A nursery crowned Essex Mums' Best Nursery and Pre-school of the Year is now in the running for a second award.

Dizzy Ducks Day Nursery, which has two branches in Billericay, walked away with the accolade after 30,000 parents across the country voted for them.

The nursery is now hopeful of winning first prize in the nursery world Award for Online and Social Media. Laura Branch, who cares for the children at the nursery, said the latest nomination was for the way staff communicate with parents through Facebook and Twitter:


She explained,"Parents told us during our yearly parents" survey they wanted us to communicate with them online. So in 2015 have invested in providing parents with helpful advice and information with whats happening in the nursery through Facebook, emails, website and magazine."

"New for this year we have introduced an online learning journey system with parents receiving updates on their children's development. They can find out what they have eaten and the activities they have completed through a secure online app. "This also allows parents to view, contribute and comment on their Child's learning journey online."

The nursery operates an 'open door' policy, where parents are invited to look around at any time.

Sarah Taylor, nursery manager at Dizzy Ducks Mayflower, added: " We are delighted to win the Essex Mums award for the Best Nursery and Pre-school 2015, the nursery and pre-school set up by a Billericay Mum of three.

" It means so much to be recognised by our parents. Our ethos to 'Treat every child as if they are our own'."
