The Eco Schools Award.
We are so proud that we have been awarded the Green Flag - the ultimate School Eco Award! This means that all the hard work and learning that the children and staff have achieved has been acknowledged and we can now fly our beautiful Green Flag in the nursery grounds.
When the assessor came to visit us she really loved how the children truly get an outdoor learning experience at our nursery, matching the quality of our indoor environment. We now have to make sure those standards carry on, for example we have already planted our nursery orchard in September.
The children all helped digging big holes for the trees and making sure they were watered each day. We are looking forward to tasty apples, plums and cherries next summer.
We have also been busy digging holes and planting lots of special plants in our Sensory Garden and have a variety of grasses and scented plants to enjoy all year round. We will be able to marvel at the colours, shapes and smells from these plants as we wander around them.
Well now households across Derbyshire can go online to find out exactly where their recycling goes and what it is turned into.
