Early in 2012 we entered the Nursery of the Year Competition run by the National Day Nurseries Association. This award, split over several categories, is the only award to be judged and decided by parents alongside the NDNA. Over several weeks we gathered evidence and feedback from all of our parents to get their thoughts on the nursery, the staff and the care that we provide at Arbor Green Nursery.
An inspector from the NDNA came to Arbor Green and spent the day with staff, children and parents. It was a nervous wait for a few weeks while the winners were decided but we soon found out we had won the award for Nursery of the Year in Scotland. We received the award at a glittering ceremony in Birmingham, followed by a staff and parent celebration back in Edinburgh.
