At the end of 2017 we were delighted to have been nominated for the Nancy Ovens Awards. Back in 2008 the nursery won the award for Outstanding Contribution to Play and this time, almost 10 years on, we were ecstatic to win the Play in Nursery and School (rural) category! Kath (our Care Manager – right) and Sarah (our Assistant Care Manager – Left) attended the award ceremony at BT Murrayfield which ran alongside Scotland’s first Play Convention.
The Nancy Oven’s Awards were established in 2003 and are Scotland’s only Play Awards. They are supported by the Scottish Government and each year many wonderful play organisations apply to win the prestigious award. You can read more about the Nancy Oven’s Trust here.
