Nurseries achieve Startwell award

startwellStartwell is an exciting new programme being rolled out throughout Birmingham. The programme is based around 7 key messages to help create a healthier environment for children and families.

The Day Nurseries have both completed their level 1 Startwell award, demonstrating the nurseries commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle to children.The nurseries achieved this award by ensuring all staff and children were physically active at nursery and encouraging parents to do the same within the home environment. As a nursery we have been learning about and exploring many different physical skills each week that support children’s physical development, including skills such as digging, skipping, marching and stacking.

Staff members have also attended a variety of courses from physical phonics to healthy eating all with the same focus on children’s physical development and wellbeing. The nurseries also held a parents coffee morning to deliver the key message of how important physical opportunities are on a child’s overall learning and development.
