The Biblical figure of King Solomon is generally known as “the wisest man who ever lived”.

One of Solomon’s most famous pieces of advice was “direct your children onto the right path and when they are older, they will not leave it.”

In pre-schools and playgroups throughout South Holland, Bourne, the Deepings and villages south of Boston, nursery leaders, supervisors and childminders are assisting parents in putting Solomon’s words into action.

An exceptional member of staff or team of staff at a pre-school or playgroup in our area will lift the Pre-School Staff Award at the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian Education Awards at South Holland Centre, Spalding, on Thursday, November 12.

The award is sponsored by Riverside Training of Spalding, a provider of childcare and management training to students since 2006.

Director Suzie Bulbeck said: “Staff at Riverside training have over 30 years’ experience of delivering qualifications to childcare workers, teaching assistants and managers in early year settings.

“Between them, our staff have also accumulated many years of experience in preparing assessing and providing courses and qualifications for childminders and professionals, from basic babysitting to business administration and managerial qualifications.

“For these reasons, Riverside Training is pleased to have the opportunity of sponsoring the Pre-School Staff Award – something which is important to ourselves as we work closely within the community to offer people the opportunity of studying for their qualifications.

“Students do so with tutors who care about them and ensure that they have all the support required in giving them the best opportunity to succeed in achieving their goals.”
