HEALTH and wellbeing accreditations have been awarded to more early year’s settings in Slough.

On Thursday, June 16 two more providers received their award at a presentation event hosted by Councillor Christine Hulme, cabinet member for children’s services, lifelong learning and skills.

Dar-ul-Madinah Nursery, in Chalvey, received a silver award and Adventure Learning Day Nursery in Langley received a bronze.

The initiative was created to support the improvement of the health and wellbeing of children and their families.

Cllr Hulme said: “It has made me very happy to be here today with some of our wonderful early year’s workforce, celebrating their achievement in receiving these awards.

“It’s been so interesting to hear what a difference implementing the work needed for these awards, has made for the children and families. Thank you very much for your continued hard work and dedication.”

Sofia Nasir, nursery manager at Dar-ul-Madinah Nursery, said: “Staff, students, and families have all had a great time today receiving this award.

"This has allowed us to grow as individuals  as well as educate and train our team and the families we work with.

Ms Nasir added this is an "excellent" programme and is encouraging all nurseries to participate.

"Parents are inspired and supportive of this campaign as their children are making better choices independently and are becoming more active," she said.

"We are excited to continue applying this concept and raising awareness in our community.”

Manjit Sandhu, nursery manager at Adventure Learning Day Nursery, said: "We decided that completing the accreditation was a really good opportunity for us.

"The kite mark accreditation helps us to review our own practice in relation to the health and wellbeing of our children and young people.

"In addition to this, it allows us to consider new working strategies which we can implement in order to further help our children and their families.”
