For 2020 we have introduced five special recognition awards to honour the nurseries that have gone above and beyond during this difficult year. Our ‘2020 Heroes’ awards will be presented to nurseries that have done everything they can to support and reassure their children, parents, communities and staff – being true representatives of Banana Moon’s caring ethos.
The awards are:
- Community Champion – A nursery that has gone the extra mile to boost community morale during the lockdown. Their actions have not only brought joy to local families, but have showcased why Banana Moon is different from any competitor.
- Parental Engagement – This award will go to a nursery that has been particularly active and engaging with families during the lockdown period. They will have come up with new creative and fun ideas to bring joy into the homes of our families during a difficult period.
- Local Recognition – A nursery that continued to support the local community by staying open while the others were closed – whether it was supporting key-worker children, or providing an after school/holiday club for older children.
- Team Spirit – A management team that has gone above and beyond to keep team spirits up through what has been an uncertain time for everyone.
- Keep Calm and Carry On – This award will go to a nursery that has followed Head Office and Government advice and procedures to the letter. This proactive attitude has ensured they are fully prepared should they need to take action.
