The Ocean Adventurers group is celebrating success on a number of fronts after being nominated for a number of awards and also its sister site Space Adventurers being awarded a Visit England Rose.
Firstly, we are absolutely delighted to announce that here at Ocean Adventurers, we have been announced as FINALISTS for FAMILY BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD in the 2022 Federation of Small Business Awards. This is an award very close to our heart given what the last 2 years unexpectedly threw at us just 9 months after opening. This builds upon us winning our first ever award in the 2020 FSB Awards for Start-Up Business of the Year. The FSB awards have seen record numbers of entries this year and we know just how many incredible, local, family run businesses there are in the South-West deserving of this so even to be shortlisted as a finalist is so incredible for us as both a family and as a team, of which we are very proud of.
Secondly, we are so proud of our Little Adventures Day Nursery Chain Little Adventures Nursery Cheddar and @LittleAdventuresNurseryWorle to be shortlisted as a FINALIST in the START-UP BUSINESS OF THE YEAR Award in the 2022 Federation of Small Business Awards. We are so proud of the team and what they have achieved since we opened our first site here in Cheddar in October 2020, then opening our second site in Worle in April 2021 and now with exciting expansion plans to open in both Taunton and a further location set to be revealed soon. The team have been shortlisted due to the highly qualified and experienced practitioners and teachers who work in each of our nurseries, our unrivalled facilities and our innovation and technology which puts the partnership with parents first and provides real-time information on each child’s day and progress. Well done to the whole team – we are so proud of you all! Fingers crossed for both awards at the FSB finals on the 2nd March!
Lastly but in no way whatsoever least, today we became the ONLY UK PLAY CHAIN to have multiple sites to have achieved the VISIT ENGLAND ROSE FOR HIGH QUALITY VISITOR ATTRACTION. @SpaceAdventurers today following an assessment was awarded this amazing tourist destination award and we also achieved this last September at Ocean Adventurers. This accolade and assessor feedback reflects how here at both Space Adventurers and Ocean Adventurers we have always tried to push the boundaries of indoor play and provide an experience which is beyond expectations for children and adults alike. Well done to the whole Space Adventures team for this achievement today!
To say we are so proud of our whole team would be an understatement. The resilience and innovation shown across the last few years has been clear across the whole team across Ocean Adventurers, Space Adventurers and our Little Adventurers Nursery Chain for constantly pushing the boundaries of what indoor play and childcare is.
