The dedicated staff at Tulip Pre-School Spalding had no idea as to whose nomination it was that led to them winning the Pre-School Staff Award in 2015.
But whoever it was won the award judges over with their description of the pre-school, based at St Nicolas Church Hall in The Vista, as a place where “the team goes the extra mile” and where “you really can see magic happening”.
Parents, grandparents and carers can start thinking now of pre-schools in South Holland, Bourne, the Deepings and villages south of Boston where staff make a significant contribution to children taking their first steps in learning.
The Lincolnshire Free Press is proud to sponsor this award and editor Jeremy Ransome said: “Having three children who are all educated locally, I know what a huge part pre-school and school plays in the life of a child.
“When your little boy or girl gets home and all they talk about is what ‘I got to do today’, rather than what they have to do, then you know they are both enjoying their learning and being set up to do well in the future.
“That is why the Lincolnshire Free Press has decided to sponsor the Pre-School Staff Award itself, to recognise the contributions that either an individual or team of staff has made to the success and achievements of a pre-school over the last 12 months.”
We have a very committed team who love their job and, most of all, love the childrenHelen Mason, manager of Tulips Pre-school Spalding
