A DISLEY nursery has been praised by its industry colleagues.

Blue Grass Purple Cow was selected from thousands of nurseries across the UK as a finalist in trade magazine Nursery World’s National Nursery Awards. The nursery was one of five to be shortlisted for two prestigious national awards.

As well as commending its approach to healthy eating and food provision, Nursery World, which covers the nursery and childcare sectors, also recognised Blue Grass Purple Cow for its devotion to building connections with parents to give children a positive start in life.

Nursery owner Kimberly Munro said: “It is such an honour to be selected by Nursery World both for our food and for our relationship with our families. To be known as one of the best in the country, as judged by our industry colleagues, is very rewarding for all of our team.”

The nursery employs 16 people and cares for the children of 86 local families in Disley, Whaley Bridge, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Buxworth and High Lane.
