A nursery has been named one of the best places to work in the country, and came top for employee wellbeing.

Woodberry Day Nursery in Church Hill, Winchmore Hill, is celebrating after ranking 16th in The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For competition.

The company, which is owned by its employees, was also ranked third in the country for making good use of employee skills, fifth for job security and sixth for career development.

It also beat nearly 900 businesses, including lingerie retailer Bravissimo, to take first place in the Best for Wellbeing award.

Michelle Corney, Woodberry manager, said:  “It is a very personal achievement because we are all employee owners and what we say really does make a difference.

“When you are committed to giving young children the very best start in life, a happy supported staff team is vital. That’s what makes this special Wellbeing award so very important to us all.

“Ofsted inspectors have told us repeatedly that a happy and engaged staff team equals happy children. Our pride in our nursery and our company is reflected in our happy and confident children and there is nothing more rewarding or satisfying than that.”
