Kids Play Childcare in MK reaches final of National Nursery AwardsStuart | YLF
Having just reached their first birthday, Kids Play’s Childcare Hub, a Milton Keynes Nursery and Pre-school is down to the final 3 for the Early Years Launch of the Year (a category in the Early Years Awards)
The Early Years Launch of the Year Award recognises new childcare settings (opened since 2016) for improving outcomes for young children and their families.
The winner of the award will be announced on the 22nd September 2018 at the Nursery World Awards Ceremony.
Said Sharon Elliott, Childcare Director “We’re thrilled to have been voted as one of the finalists and are extremely proud of the entire team at the Childcare Hub. It’s a magical place and it’s great to see children connect with Nature. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed till September.”
The Childcare Hub is the home of nature-based play and opened to the public in July 2017. The newest venue for Kids Play Childcare, this site is the beacon for their ethos of nature-based play.
With each room having access to the woodland garden, children are exposed to a rich natural environment stimulating all their senses by tasting vegetables they have grown, smelling flowers and herbs to feeling rain on their faces.
The Childcare Hub also plays host to Forest School sessions for all MK nurseries and includes a rooftop garden.
