Healthy Early Years

We are proud to announce we have received our Health Early Years Award at level 3. We are the first nursery in Edinburgh to gain this award at this level so you can imagine how delighted we were when we got told we had been awarded it.

The staff at Arbor Green Nursery are continually teaching the children about making healthy lifestyle choices. We believe if we can teach children the correct choices from a young age they are more likely to make these healthy choices in adulthood.

To gain this award we had to prove that we promote the health and wellbeing of the children, staff and parents at the nursery. For example some of the things we provide include:

  • A healthy seasonal menu
  • Water throughout the day
  • Active play
  • Team building days

If you would like to hear more about our Healthy Early Years projects or be part of the Health Early Years committee, please talk to Nikki our deputy at the nursery.
