Winchester day nursery wins ‘top UK companies’ Award


Everybody at Maples Day Nursery in Winchester was celebrating as their employee-owned company was rated ‘Extraordinary’, and named, for the 11th year running, a top UK workplace.

Balloons decorated the day nursery in Hatherley Road, following a listing in ‘The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For’ Lists.

Practitioner Amy Stubbington, attended the London awards ceremony and said:

“It is a very personal achievement because we are all employee owners and what we say really does make a difference. When you are committed to giving young children the very best start in life, a happy supported staff team is vital.”

Ms Stubbington, is also a Partnership Councillor, one of 44 elected employee owners instrumental in the decision-making at the award-winning childcare and education group, Childbase Partnership, which is Employee Owned Business of the Year and UK National Champion in the European Business Awards.

The company was rated 25 in the prestigious Sunday Times list and one of only 160 UK organizations to achieve three-star, ‘Extraordinary’ accreditation – for the sixth year running – by engagement specialists, Best Companies.

“Ofsted inspectors have told us repeatedly that a happy and engaged staff team equals happy children. Our pride in our nursery and our company is reflected in our happy and confident children and there is nothing more rewarding or satisfying than that,” said Amy.
