    Portico Nursery Group celebrated at the Nursery Management Today Awards 2018 held in London.

    Family owned Portico Nursery Group were finalists for three awards, the Nursery Operations Director Award, The Nursery Group Award, and The Manager of The Year Award. They were delighted when Clare Eccles, Senior Manager at Portico at Moss Bank based in St Helens won Manager of The Year at this prestigious event. Following testimonies from parents/carers and a formal interview in November, the judges commented,

    “Clare showed a passion and commitment to making a real difference to the children in her care - this is her main motivation. Given the opportunity to make a significant change to national childcare practice she said that she would diminish red tape and bureaucracy and allow practitioners to spend more time playing with children. Her desire to help families flourish was evident.”

    Director Nicole Politis said, “We are delighted that Clare’s outstanding work has been recognised by the highly competitive NMT Awards. Clare is a very modest childcare professional who genuinely goes the extra mile for all the children and families in her care. We are so proud the NMT judges agree Clare’s work is exceptional.”
