Children 1st @ Meir Park raise money for The Donna Louise Children's Hospice Trust

We are delighted to report on the excellent work done by, staff, children and parents from Children 1st @ Meir Park last weekend. Everyone at the nursery was extremely busy and gave up their Saturday to take part in a charity car wash for The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice Trust.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Based in Stoke on Trent, The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice provides a range of specialist care and support services for children with a shortened life expectancy and their families. It provides this care and support from a purpose-built house in Stoke on Trent. Children 1st has supported the Trust for many years, holding regular fundraising events to help raise as much money as possible for the charity.

On the day, Children 1st staff, children and parents all chipped in, worked extremely hard and washed over 30 cars in 6 hours. The children were rewarded for their efforts with a special guest appearance from Peppa Pig! Peppa was very extremely pleased with their work!

The excellent efforts of everyone involved helped to raise a total of £264.50!

We would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone involved. Well done!!!

 

Egg-citing fun at Children 1st @ Acorns Upper Tean!

 

Children 1st @ Acorns Upper Tean have been having fun in the spring sunshine, having an egg and spoon race in our beautiful garden!


Our little Easter Bunnies ran across the playground, around the benches, it was good practice for running off those chocolate eggs in a few days' time!


Later in the week we made our very own tiny gardens all ready for spring, we planted lots of treasure that we had found outside like leaves, pine cones and even the odd worm!

Come back soon to see what fun we've been having at Children 1st @ Acorns Upper Tean!

Jessica Lee MP Shows Support for Local Apprentices

 

Children 1st @ Derby Road welcomed a very special visitor last week, our local Member of Parliament, Jessica Lee, MP for Erewash.

 

During the visit Jessica spoke with some of our trainees about the progression of their apprenticeships, their key areas of learning, what they are enjoying most about their experience and where they hope their qualifications will take them in the future.


One apprentice Jessica spoke with was 21 year old Sophie England. “I really enjoyed meeting Jessica and being able to talk to her about what I am doing and what I hope to achieve in my career. Jessica is hugely positive about apprenticeships and her enthusiasm for what we are doing is really supportive.”

Commenting on the visit, Jessica Lee said: “It is fantastic to see a company so committed to the training and development of young people. I have really enjoyed speaking with the apprentices this morning and their enthusiasm for their chosen career is hugely evident. The fact that many of Children 1st’s apprentices remain with the company shows the quality of their training and the benefits of apprenticeship schemes as a whole.”

Last week’s visit was a welcome return to Children 1st for Jessica Lee who honoured the company by officially opening its new head office and training academy at Mayfield House in Long Eaton on 28th February.
