We are so proud to share that our Sharnbrook nursery has achieved their 2023 Eco-Schools Green Flag Award, with distinction!

This award is an international accreditation that recognises young people's environmental actions! The programme itself empowers and engages young people (as well as staff teams and therefore families) in important environmental issues, teaches great responsibility and generates a sense of community, as well as develops the skills and knowledge children need to play an active role in protecting our environment now and throughout their lifetimes!

Congratulations to all the children and the staff at the nursery and a big well done to their eco-lead Daniela for leading sustainable initiatives so wonderfully at Sharnbrook nursery, and for helping the nursery to achieve this award for the second year in a row!

Snippets from Eco-Schools' feedback:

"It's clear your Eco-Committee are constantly considering what actions they can take to improve their local community and benefit our planet."

"The projects in your Action Plan are very relevant to the young children you work with; hosting your own litter-picks as well as creating a rewilding area for your nursery are a perfect variety of actions for engaging younger children."

"Staff members should be proud that you have provided young people with a good awareness of environmental issues and strong foundations for them to build on as they progress to school and hopefully continue their journey as environmentalists."

"We loved reading about your success in involving parents in your gardening club and plant swap initiatives."
