A COMINS Coch nursery is celebrating after achieving a top award for health and wellbeing.
Little Acorns childcare has recently completed all aspects of the Healthy and Sustainable Pre-schools Scheme by working with their children, staff and parents to improve nutrition and oral health, physical activity, emotional health and well being, environment, safety, hygiene and staff health.
Little Acorns Childcare has been involved in the Healthy Pre-Schools Scheme since 2012 and has received resources, training and advice from the scheme to support their good work.
The nursery has promoted physical activity, cooking skills, hygiene procedures, and healthy eating and social skills using circle time with the children in their care.
Angharad Rennie-Davies, manager, said: “Working with the Healthy Pre-Schools Scheme has been of real benefit to our nursery – not only for the children in our care but for us as staff and parents too – in order to improve everyone’s health and wellbeing.”
Helen Lewis, healthy schools and healthy pre-schools practitioner for Ceredigion said: “We are delighted that Little Acorns has completed all aspects of this health award.
“This achievement demonstrates how the Healthy and Sustainable Pre-School Scheme is enabling Public Health Wales to work in equal partnership with nurseries to improve the future health and wellbeing of our children.
“By combining our efforts and assets in a purposeful way, we can create a healthier, happier and fairer Wales.”
The Welsh Network of Healthy Pre-school Schemes is delivered by Public Health Wales on behalf of the Welsh Government.
