Healthy Nursery of the Year Award


This award is nominated by the nursery manager and voted for by parents. Early years providers play a critical role in creating the foundations of healthy lifestyles for children and families. Tell us all about how you support and develop; physical activity, access to the outdoors and nature, outdoor, healthy eating, nutrition and portion size, self-care, what you do to balance sedentary activities with physical activity and how you work with parents/carers to encourage healthy habits at home and in the community.
