On May 24th we were 'inspected' to achieve our Sheffield Healthy Early Years Award. The award recognises the high quality experiences we provide to children to develop physical skills, spend time outdoors, cooking and sharing meal times together and how we support children to develop such an early understanding of healthy lifestyles, self esteem and well being. A special thanks goes to Naomi and Rachel our health and well being coordinators who have completed extra training, audits and action plans enabling us to achieve the award
