We are delighted to share the proud news that Little Inspirations Day Nursery has been named as the Nursery Group winner for 2021 in The National NMT Nursery Awards that took place in London last weekend and we are over the moon!
Little Inspirations Day Nursery which is based in Llantrisant, has 6 nurseries located across RCT, Barry and Newport and won the award for the best group of nurseries under 10 sites across the UK. This is a fantastic achievement from the childcare industry’s leading awards in the UK. The National NMT Nursery Awards has celebrated and recognised the achievements of the nursery sector for nearly 20 years, and champions the sector and its workers continuously, their awards are just one of the ways that they achieve this.
This latest achievement adds to our 2021 successes, as earlier in the year we were named as a St David Award winner by First Minister, Mark Drakeford for our response to the Covid-19 pandemic and our continuous provision of childcare particularly for Key-Worker families.
Managing Director, Jenine Gill who attended the awards in London on behalf of the company commented “This is a really proud moment for me personally but more importantly proud of the contribution from our 100 staff across all our nurseries who have made this possible. This has been an incredibly challenging period for everyone and as we continue to work safely to minimise the risks posed by the coronavirus, the childcare industry as a whole should be proud of the contribution it has made, but this award means a great deal, to be recognised within our sector across the UK.”
“As we welcome new babies and toddlers into our nurseries for the first time, we are seeing the impact on these young families caused by extended periods of restrictions, with some of the children not being apart from their parents since they were born. The role that nurseries play with our nursery practitioners is key to support babies and toddlers with their early development needs and their interaction with other children ahead of going to school is key. This award is for each member of our team, I wish they could all be here to accept it with me, but I accept this one their behalf.”
With continued growth planned and a new nursery due to open in Pontypridd in Spring 2022, Little Inspirations plan to make a positive difference to support even more families across south Wales in the years’ ahead!
