Double award win for Lincolnshire nursery professionals

Two practitioners at a Lincolnshire nursery business are celebrating wins at a national awards ceremony.

Kristina Johnson and Julie Crowther from Mon Ami Children’s Nurseries were named as winners at the Nursery Management Today National Nursery Awards 2017 this weekend.

Kristina won the Operations / Regional Manager of the Year crown while Julie was awarded the Nursery Nurse of the Year title.

Kristina oversees the work of all four Osted-rated outstanding Mon Ami nurseries in Alford, Boston, Swineshead and Wragby.

Julie is the lead practitioner for young babies under the age of two at Mon Ami’s newest nursery in Wragby.

They received their awards from TV presenter and adventurer Ben Fogle at the Hilton London Metropole on Saturday, November 25.

Kristina said: “We were completely shocked when we heard our names read out as the winners, but we’re absolutely delighted as well.

“These are individual awards but we like to think that they’re a reflection of the hard work and dedication of all our staff at all four nurseries.

“It’s great news for our business and it’s also nice to put Lincolnshire on the map at an event which was attended by early years professionals from all over the UK.”
