A NURSERY in Lymm has been given national recognition for the care it offers to children.

The Rosebank Centre, on Pepper Street, has been awarded National Day Nurseries Association’s highest ‘Quality Counts Platinum Award’.

This is in addition to its outstanding rating given by Ofsted following an inspection in 2019.

Quality Counts is a national quality scheme designed to help a nursery explore all aspects of its care and education to ensure that it is delivering the best possible service for young children.

The nursery has been working towards it for the past year,

Julie Roach, Rosebank manager, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded Quality Counts (Platinum) level.

“This is a special achievement and reaching this point is a culmination of much hard work from the nursery team over several years.

“I would like to thank everyone who has supported us during our Quality Counts journey.”

Sadie Hopley, educational director of Rosebank Nurseries Group, congratulated Julie for her hard work and commitment to the nursery having managed The Rosebank Centre for more than 11 years.

Purnima Tanuku, chief executive of National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) added: “Achieving Quality Counts involves a great deal of hard work and development, and illustrates a nursery’s absolute commitment to children.

“The nursery should be very proud of this achievement as the Quality Counts scheme demonstrates that children are at the heart of what they do.”

The QC journey takes up to 12 months to complete and requires the full involvement and participation of the whole nursery staff team, creating a culture of continuous improvement and commitment to team building.
