Nursery of the Year 2018

Greenfields has achieved national success in the 2018 Nursery World Awards, winning an award for ‘Nursery of the Year’ and ‘Early Years in Schools’.

Judge Wendy Scott who visited Greenfields was very impressed with the ‘remarkable’ work that she observed and said;

‘Greenfields’ curriculum is directed towards nurturing, supporting and listening to young children through a vibrant, creative approach to learning. The nursery school is well known for its work with resident artists, where children are challenged to think outside their own scale and experience by creating large works with new materials and considering questions of maths and physics as well as exploring a set of art practices’.

‘The work at Greenfields has been described as visionary, and it is seen as a beacon in a very needy area’.

Nursery World is a leading publication for early years education and childcare professionals.  First published in 1925 Nursery World has been leading the way in early years for more than 90 years.

I am very proud to lead a team of committed and highly skilled early years educators that work tirelessly every day to ensure that every child is listened to and receives the high quality care and education that they deserve.   We are all very proud of the Greenfields children and this award affirms the life, creativity and joy that each of them brings to Greenfields everyday making it the warm and inspiring place that it is.
