Comments from our inspection include:
Eureka! Nursery has been awarded ‘Millie’s Mark’, a paediatric first aid Quality Mark for nurseries. This has been awarded by National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) in association with the Department for Education and Millie’s Trust and, in their own words: “is an exceptional achievement for a childcare setting, as it shows they are going above and beyond minimum requirements in keeping children safe.”
We have also achieved Step 2 of the Steps to Quality scheme. This is a quality assurance scheme available to all childcare providers and covers areas such as play, care and inclusion, environment, management, training and development and relationships.

We have been short-listed for the NMT Individual Nursery Awards for being a nursery that is a single owned and run site (i.e. not part of a multiple group of owned nurseries) which has, in the view of the judges, created the very best environment to promote the highest levels of childcare, staff morale and business performance.
We have been short-listed for the Community Support Award with Nursery World for the work we have done with our Intergenerational Arts Project with Trinity Fold Nursing Home and Dean Clough Foundation. This involved staff, parents and children in the project and supports our local community.
