02 Oct Upminister nursery scoop third award of 2019!

There is extra joy and much celebration at Little Adventurers Nursery, Upminster this
week, having just won their 3rd Award this year! Their exceptionally talented Manager,
Ginny Andreas said she was both, “Overwhelmed and over the moon”, to win Nursery
World’s Manager of the Year Award 2019 on Saturday night at The Brewery in the
heart of London.

Ginny said, “Having worked in the Early Years sector for over 30 years, I have had the privilege of
working with some of the most eager and enquiring minds, in both young children and adults who
share my passion for offering a rich and nurturing childhood to our youngest children. I want to
especially thank those who have trusted me, believed in me and walked with me on my journey
towards excellence; Lee Stimpson, the Nursery’s Director; Chris Ford, my closest colleague; our
wonderful senior team, Charlotte, Kerry and Lewis and every parent who has entrusted their
precious child into our care. I count myself truly lucky to have found my vocation in life and to have
the privilege of influencing the lives of many children in some small but significant way.”

This individual and family run nursery located in Cranham has been in operation for just 4 years and
has already achieved great things. Alongside, scooping the Nursery Manager of the Year Award,
the Nursery is also a U.K. top 6 finalist for Health and Wellbeing Nursery of the Year; promoting
healthy lifestyles is deeply rooted into the nursery where each child is truly cherished as they grow
and develop. Their latest awards include being a Top 20 London Nursery for (as
voted for by parents) and they are the first setting in Havering and across outer London to have
achieved a GOLD Healthy Early Years London Award. Earlier this year, they were honoured to host
a visit by the Deputy Mayor of London, Joanne McCartney in recognition of their work around health,
well being and school readiness.

Councillor Robert Benham, Havering’s Cabinet Member for Education, Children and Families,
said, “This is a fantastic accolade and demonstrates Ginny’s dedication to leading a first class
nursery. The Council is committed to giving every child a healthy start and has worked closely with
Little Adventurers for many years to support their work, particularly the tooth brushing programme
designed to tackle childhood tooth decay at an early age.”
