Staff at a Leeds nursery group have proved they shine brighter than the rest.

Sunbeams, which has branches at Halton and Austhorpe as well as one in Harrogate, has won the ‘Best Indoor Learning Environment’ in the UK award. The team beat off competition from over 11,500 nurseries to be crowned winners of the prestigious national award.

Staff were presented with their gong by actor and singer Keith Duffy (Coronation Street and Boyzone) at the 12th National Nursery Awards at the Hilton hotel.

To scoop the top prize, the team was assessed by a panel of judges who looked at the learning environment, practice and knowledge displayed at Sunbeams.

A statement on the nursery’s website said 
staff were “ecstatic” at the win.

It added: “Now that really is something to be proud of!

“Well done to all the staff at Harrogate, Halton and Austhorpe.”
