Nurseries have a vital role to play in creating the pathways to a healthy life for the children in your care. Tell us when you register about your healthy eating policies, the outdoor activities you provide and how you work with parents to encourage healthy habits at home.
Voting results are based on a percentage of overall places; an average is taken using the number of votes per nursery places and then used to aid the judging process. Adding an explanatory comment about your vote will further enable us to determine a winner from the many nurseries that enter.
