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.
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.
Additional evidence. Please provide examples of the following menus: Your most recent summer menu, a celebration event menu, a religious celebration menu that you have used in the last six months (please also share a copy of the activities the children took part in on the day of the celebration). Please upload your food hygiene certificate, testimonies and photographic evidence.
