Over the past few years Toybox Day Nurseries have been fortunate to be recognised both nationally and locally with a number nominations and finalist appearances for a wide range of awards.

On a national basis there are two sector specific journals NMT- Nursery Management Today and Nursery World, both are well read and attract a huge amount of interest in our industry. Locally Toybox was recognised by Rising Stars Bedfordshire and recently by the Federation of Small Business (FSB). Toybox has:

  • had a member of staff reach the finals of NMT Nursery Nurse of the Year.

  • been a finalist in Nursery World – Nursery Chain of the Year for two years running

  • been a finalist in NMT – Nursery Team of the Year

  • been awarded a special commendation for Training and Development by the NMT

  • Runner up for Business of the Year – Rising Stars in Bedfordshire

  • Winner for Training and Development - Rising Stars in Bedfordshire

  • Top 5 for Nursery of the Year at the NMT awards in 2014

  • In 2015 we came top 5 in Nursery of the Year and Recruitment Initative

  • Finalist for Nursery Manager of the Year 2018

When entering any award or being nominated Toybox did so not directly to win but more for the challenge to see if we are developing our practice, our learning and development and our overall childcare in an exemplary industry recognised way.

Awards were a validation of our staffs efforts to deliver outstanding childcare every day for every child.

Toybox Great Denham has a fantastic history of success to continue.  In 2014, Toybox Great Denham came Top 5 for Individual Nursery of the Year as well as winning Website of the Year at the NMT awards. We look forward to see what 2015 holds!
