NDNA Awards 2018 - Practitioner of the Year - Maxine Hill
We are absolutely thrilled to let you know that our lovely Maxine has achieved national acclaim, winning the award for Nursery Practitioner of the Year in the National Day Nursery Association (NDNA) Awards scheme. Maxine was one of 7 shortlisted candidates of practitioners from all over the UK. We are so very proud of her and happy that she earned the recognition she so rightfully deserves.
We also want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to all the parents who supported her nomination. We all agree that we have never had such a lovely bunch and we feel quite lucky to be able to be a small part of your family life.
We take a great deal of pride in everything we do. Sometimes, we attract the attention of our colleagues and peers for the things we do particularly well. It is a great boost to all of us to know that, owing to our exceptionally high standards, we are amongst the best in the entire country at what we do.
Our owner, Kimberly, was also recognised as being The Best Nursery Chef in the country by "Nursery Management Today", our professional industry title. Kimberly's nerves were fully tested when she competed in a Master Chef style "cook-off" in front of the cameras in a professional kitchen. But, according to the judges; "There was thought behind every element of her meal ... She was brave in her choice of fish as the main course and also featured an excellent vegetarian alternative ... Kimberly’s passion makes food part of the fabric of the Nursery."
