Meadows Nursery in Northumberland has been named amongst the best in the country. Operating from Nafferton Farm for 25 years, the nursery has come out on top in the daynurseries.co.uk Top 25 Awards.
The setting has been named the best in the UK from 11,770 nurseries that are listed on the site.
Margaret Taylor founded the setting and said this of their achievement
“Winning any award is special, but to be chosen as the best nursery in the whole of the UK based on the recommendations of the families that choose to come to Meadows makes these awards so much more meaningful.”
“The needs of each individual child lie at the heart of our ethos and practice, and we’re very proud of our welcoming and family-orientated, homely environment that we offer.”
“We have space for each child to be nurtured, encouraged, stimulated and to be cared for in a way that gives them the freedom to explore the life they’re growing into, and we like to think we can offer children a more rounded, richer experience that cannot be found elsewhere.”
The Top 10 Awards are based on recommendations of parents, relatives and guardians of children who attend nurseries listed by daynurseries.co.uk.
Meadows received a maximum score of 10 out of 10 across all areas. Now, looking after around 50 children, the setting has access to the farm as well as vegetable plots, a herb garden, sensory walled garden, and fruit trees.
A mother of one of the children who attends the setting said:
“Meadows is simply a wonderful nursery with such a lovely family atmosphere. The range of activities, both daily and special events, together with the enthusiasm of the staff makes it somewhere really special, and I love that my children are able to spend so much time outside.”
