Cheryl Hadland, Managing Director, and Founder of Tops Day Nurseries said, “Tops Day Nurseries is particularly pleased to be finalists this year given the extraordinary pressures on the teams this year due to the pandemic and national shortage of level 3 staff. This is a testament to our resilience, and our commitment to doing our very best for children and their parents. I’m very proud of the whole team and thank them from the bottom of my heart”.
Tops Prince Rock, part of the Tops Day Nurseries family has been selected for the Nursery Training & Development Award.
Amy Alderson, Director of Early Years Audit and Training said; “I am incredibly proud to be made finalists for this award as it represents the hard work and dedication from both the Tops training team and those colleagues that engage with our outstanding training programmes. Tops Day Nurseries has always been an advocate of staff training and development, recognising that investment in our teams is the best way to raise the quality and skill of the company’s workforce. To even be a finalist for this prestigious award is certainly something to celebrate and I am incredibly grateful to everybody that has contributed to our huge success”.
Katie Humphreys, a Senior Nursery Manager at Tops Havant, one of thirty-two nurseries in the Tops Day Nurseries family, has also been selected as a finalist for the Nursery Manager Award.
Katie Humphreys said: “I feel honoured and privileged to have been nominated for the manager of the year award. I enjoy supporting others, sharing my knowledge and passion for childcare and helping practitioners and other managers be the best versions of themselves.
I enjoy my role and love that every day is different presenting new challenges but also days which are filled with joy and happiness”.
