The occasion marked 21 years since Angela and Andrew Watkiss opened Mount Lane Day Care Nursery with the help of NatWest. Since 1990 Mount Lane Day Care Nursery - which has been extended twice - and its qualified and experienced staff have been offering full and part-time care for 0-11 year olds. The nursery is OFSTED approved to "outstanding", and has also won Platinum Shropshire Healthy Eating Award - both of which are the highest levels available - in recognition of its high standards. It is open all year round with the exception of bank holidays and has places for 104 children.
Commenting on the occasion, Angela Watkiss, owner of Mount Lane Day Care Nursery said: "We are thrilled to be celebrating our 21st birthday and it is a lovely gesture by Adrian and NatWest to mark the occasion with this birthday cake."
Andrew Watkiss added: "We're delighted with how the business has developed and grown since 1990 and would like to say a big thank you to the NatWest team for all their help, support and belief in what we have been trying to do over the years. We know that every child is an individual whose social and educational development is of paramount importance. Therefore our aim is to encourage an extension of parents own homes by providing a loving and caring environment."
Adrian Worthington, Mount Lane Day Care Nursery's dedicated NatWest Business Manager, said: "I'm delighted to be able to offer ongoing support to the team at Mount Lane Day Care Nursery and to help them celebrate this very special birthday. They have put a lot of time and energy into developing this business and creating a great environment for the children."
