Thrive Childcare and Education’s Holyrood Nursery Swinton turned 20 years old today (17th June 2022).
The team at Holyrood nursery say, “It’s our birthday! We’ve been open 20 years today! What a fantastic 20 year it’s been Thank you to each and every one of our families, past and present, who have supported us over the years. Here’s to many more years ahead and many more families to meet!”
We celebrate this fantastic Ofsted Outstanding Nursery by taking a look at its achievements and talking to the team members who have helped make it the loved and respected choice for so many parents in Salford who wish to see their children thrive.
Holyrood Nursery Swinton opened its doors on 17th May 2002 and has consistently provided children with quality resources in an environment that is stimulating and conducive to their happiness and well-being.
The the team at Holyrood Nursery Swinton are very proud of their award-winning achievements over the twenty years. These awards include:
Outstanding OFSTED Report, We’re Green We’re Clean, 5 Star Environmental Health, I Can Award, 5 Star Food Hygiene Award, Nursery World Award Winner, NMT Nursery Group of the Year 2018, Day Nurseries Top 20 Nursery Group 2020 and Investors In Young People Gold Practice Award.
The children and the team at Holyrood Swinton had a lovely day celebrating 20 years of being an outstanding nursery.
Our excellent, long-standing Nursery Manager, Sarah Fisher, told us about her time at Holyrood Nursery Swinton:
“I started here as a college student in 2006 and worked up from a supply practitioner to practitioner then senior, deputy and then manager. All 3 of my children have been through the nursery from babies to pre-school and now out of school club. I love the family feel of the nursery, a lot of us have been here between 10 and 20 years.”
Holyrood Nursery Swinton has been a great stepping stone for our team members in terms of career progression. One of our Regional support Managers started her career with Thrive Childcare and Education here at this nursery. Hayley Walker joined shortly after it opened and took on several responsibilities that expanded her knowledge.
Taking on a variety of duties helped Hayley progress to Senior Practitioner in 2004. Eight months later, she was offered the position of Deputy Nursery Manager.
