We have achieved numerous awards and accolades over the years, including the Nursery World Awards – Nursery Chain of the Year 2013. We take our awards seriously as we are judged by experts in our profession who evaluate what we do and the impact it has on the children in our care. We continue to strive in achieving excellence.
Nursery World Awards
We are delighted to have been awarded, Nursery Chain of the Year, at the Nursery World Awards in 2013. This award has shown our commitment to providing quality childcare and education across the UK. We are extremely proud and would like to thank all of our nurseries, staff and families for their support.
Excellent Inspection by The Care Inspectorate
Dunblane Nature Kindergarten were recently inspected by The Care Inspectorate and achieved grades of very good and excellent. The report particularly highlighted the positive relationships between children and staff and graded this area of the service as excellent. The service was also awarded an excellent grade for quality of management and leadership.
Smile Too Dental Scheme
We were proud of our sparkling smiles when we were awarded Smile Too Dental Scheme accreditation. Each child in our nursery has a personal toothbrush and cleans their teeth daily. We are supported in this by an Oral Health Worker from Smile Too. Our nursery menus are not just deliciously tasty but have been accredited by Smile Too for promoting healthy eating…..yum!
The Eco-Schools Programme engages children in key issues such as the environment, sustainability, global citizenship and the value of a low carbon future. We are registered as an ECO schools centre and are the proud holders of both Bronze and Silver Awards and as of March 2014 the coveted Green Flag in recognition of our commitment to being an environmentally friendly nursery. Our children are passionate recyclers and love nothing better than an afternoon caring for their garden.
