Not only is Juice Nursery an Outstanding early years setting, but we also hold a numbers of awards and accreditations, in recognition of the quality of our provision, staff and training
Princess Royal Training Award
Juice were delighted to be one of the 44 recipients in the 2019 Princess Royal Training Awards, and the ONLY small company in the whole of the UK to receive an award! This was in recognition of training completed by staff as part of their implementation of the Mini Me Yoga & Mindfulness programme throughout the setting.
This has had a huge impact on the setting as a whole, and has benefitted staff both personally, as well as professionally, enabling them to introduce and embed techniques and activities to nursery routines to help safeguard and promote health and well being.
The Princess Royal Training Awards is an honour for UK employers that have created lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to business performance.

Supporting Staff Well Being Award
In recognition of Juice’s dedication to supporting the health and well being of our team, the nursery was named the national winner of the ‘Supporting Staff Well Being Award’, presented by Christie & Co, at the 2019 NDNA Awards, which seek to recognise and celebrate excellence within the early years sector.
This is an exceptional achievement for a childcare setting, as it shows they are going above and beyond minimum requirements, in terms of first aid training, to help keep children safe.
As a parent, placing your child in a setting that is endorsed with Millie’s Mark provides reassurance that all childcare practitioners know what to do in a paediatric first aid situation.
It further acknowledges that children’s safety is at the forefront of the provider’s mind when they care for your child.
