European Language Day 2017
13/3/18/ Willow Tree wins again!
The Council of Europe have confirmed that out of the whole of the United Kingdom, the Willow Tree has won the 'most innovative event for the 'European Day of Languages.' Milly, our Spanish Teacher with the help of the Aunties, organised a 'How Languages Shape Us' event with each room choosing a different country to represent. The nursery was decorated with flags, maps and posters, whilst staff and children dressed in the colours and traditional costume of choice. Events throughout the day included stories, craft, games and foods from the chosen countries. The day was a complete success! With fun educational language learning, the world became smaller and more accessible to the children, enriching their understanding of different cultures. Winning this award just made it even better!
1/3/18 Top 20 recommended Nurseries
Fantastic news! The Willow Tree has been voted one of the top 20 recommended Nurseries in the East of England. Discovering this vast area covers Essex; Cambridgeshire; Norfolk; Suffolk; Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire, was amazing. With our wins for Blue Ribbon and European Language, this Day Nurseries award gives us a 'trio of trophies!' This one's even more special because it's judged by the families that actually use our services. Thank you to everyone that voted for us, supporting the Willow Tree and sharing in its success.
