The Nursery World Awards shine a light on best practice within the early years education and childcare industry and aim to raise the profile of the sector overall. Only the most inspiring individuals, organisations and initiatives make it onto the short list each year.
Helen Churchill, Nursery Manager, said: “We are all absolutely delighted for Chris, this is a wonderful achievement and we will be on the edge of our seats until the winners are announced later this year. He is thoroughly deserving of this nod from the UK’s leading early years education and childcare awards and we will all be keeping our fingers and toes firmly crossed for him!”
