Parents with children at four nurseries in the Mansfield area are celebrating after they were all voted into the top 10 chldcare settings in the whole of the East Midlands.

Cherubs nurseries in Somersall Street and Wynndale Drive, Mansfield, as well as those in Pleasley and Ravenshead beat off competition from thousands of competitors to be recipients of the daynurseries.co.uk Top 20 Awards for the region.

And mums and dads not only believed the Cherubs nurseries were among the best 20, their feedback pushed all four into the top 10.

Sarah Ward, of the Cherubs head office, said the accolades for the individual teams that came with the awards were well deserved.

“We’re incredibly proud of our staff and it’s so nice for them to read the lovely comments.

“It’s all through their hardwork and the effort they put in to support our parents.”

Cherubs own 11 nurseries, ten in Nottinghamshire and a further one in Derbyshire.

Of the four that made the East Midlands top ten, Pleasley grabbed the number two spot, Ladybrook was fourth, Langdale eighth and Wynndale was tenth.

Manager of Cherubs Wynndale Heather Nash said: “We were elated when we found out.

“It’s great for the parents who are thinking of sending their children, they can see what kind of a family-orientated place we are.”

The daynurseries.co.uk awards allow the parents or carers of the children to submit reviews to the website.

It acts as a popular method of giving opinions on settings - more than 50,000 reviews have been published - allowing people to make recommendations to other parents looking for nurseries, independent of the nurseries themselves.

Nikki Wilkinson of Cherubs Pleasley said: “These reviews are special as they are written by our parents which means a great deal to myself and the staff.”
