A WREXHAM nursery manager received an accolade in an awards ceremony.
Rachel Davies, manager of the Rossett House Nursery, Llay Road, Wrexham, scooped the title of the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) Nursery Carer of the Year 2009 in an awards ceremony at York Racecourse.
Rachel won £250 of resources for the nursery and a luxury spa day for herself and a friend.
Rachel said: “It was a huge shock and a lovely surprise to win. I love my work and think what I do is simply a part of my everyday work but it’s nice to know that parents appreciate it.
“It feels a little strange to be an award-winning carer but all the children, parents and staff are absolutely thrilled.
“I had a fantastic night at the awards, and it’s still sinking in!”
Purnima Tanuku, chief executive of NDNA, added: “Rachel is a shining example of the dedication, passion and commitment nursery carers have and we hope she enjoys continuing to celebrate her special achievement back at nursery.”
