A NURSERY in Altrincham is celebrating after scooping a second national award.

Following success at the NDNA’s award ceremony in June, when Juice Nursery picked up the ‘Supporting Staff Well Being Award’, they have hit the mark again, being named as one of the recipients of this year’s Princess Royal Training Awards.

The Princess Royal Training Awards is an honour for UK employers that have created lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to business performance.

A total of 48 recipients, from a wide range of sectors, have achieved the Princess Royal Training Awards standard of excellence in training, in 2019.

The announcement follows the adjudication of the Princess Royal Training Awards Commission, composed of seven leading figures in the business and learning & development community and HRH The Princess Royal, who is the President of the City & Guilds Group.

A relative minnow, in the 2019 line up, which features others such as BAE Systems, Lloyds Bank, The Co-Op and GSK, Juice received this recognition on the back of training completed by staff as part of their implementation of the Mini Me Yoga & Mindfulness programme.

This has had a huge impact on the setting as a whole, and has benefitted staff both personally, as well as professionally, enabling them to introduce and embed techniques and activities to nursery routines to help safeguard and promote health and wellbeing.

Juice Nursery owner, Mike Leary, said: “Our team are the lifeblood of our nursery and integral to our on-going success – simply put, we couldn’t do it without them.

“With this in mind, we recognise that to ensure the very best outcomes for the children in our care, we must first ensure the same for our staff.

“We are absolutely delighted to receive this award; the only small business in the whole Country to be successful this year.

“This recognises our total commitment to our staff, and the dedication that they have shown us in return.”
