Nursery World Awards 2018 - Finalist - Nursery Food Award
FINALIST in the National Awards scheme run by Nursery World Magazine.
We are one of four Nurseries in the country to be singled out for our food offering in both Hayfield and Disley Nurseries. Our Disley Nursery hosted an Awards Judge, who came along to assess our catering arrangements and, while the Judge didn’t visit Hayfield personally, she said that she was certain she would find “the same level of passion for high quality food and creativity in the Menu” as she witnessed in Disley. I know that she also spoke to a few parents, who were very supportive of our efforts - thank you!
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."
