Each year we hold an annual award ceremony to recognise all of the fantastic achievements from the previous year.
On Friday 31st March, we held the 2017 Busy Bees Awards at The Crowne Plaza in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
The evening hosted Nursery Managers and Nursery Practitioners from some of our 268 nursery settings, as well as our Directors and our National Support Teams to celebrate outstanding achievements across the company.
