Thumbs Up for Our Amazing Nursery Practitioners

Children 1st Day Nurseries are delighted to join with colleagues from across the U.K. in showing our appreciation of the dedication, commitment and the amazing work undertaken by those working in the nursery sector, especially over the past twelve months.

The quality of care and early learning experiences have a significant and lasting effect on children’s development and we extend our sincere thanks to all those bringing such high quality provision to this important sector.

The early years sector across the U.K. has  staged a social media take over under the banner of ‘Thumbs Up for Early Years’ and to support this we invited all our nurseries to send in  their ‘Thumbs Up’ photos.  Through a simple thumbs up the staff are showing their support for the nursery sector and its outstanding achievements in providing quality care, education and support for babies and young children.

We are pleased to share here a selection of images showing our dedicated staff and some of the wonderful children we care for every day. Many more are available to view across our social media channels. If you would like to get involved, please upload a photo of you and your child and use the hashtag #ThumbsUpForEarlyYears. 

We congratulate all Children 1st staff, our own frontline staff, for the fantastic spirit and hard work  you have shown during the pandemic and give you all a THUMBS UP!!
