04 Jan We’re on the Radio!…again
Recording time at Burnley’s 2BR
Donna Passed a Test
So last month our Office Manager Donna passed her Level 3 in Social Media for Business – well done Donna. She has been working towards this qualification for the last year and has enjoyed the experience. In addition to the nursery Facebook page, there is now an Instagram page too. It was quite amusing that Donna had to also do an ICT qualification to prove that she was competent in all aspects of Microsoft office to gain the final certificate – she was a bit put out that they wouldn’t accept her GCSE in Information Technology that she passed in 1993 using a BBC computer before the internet even existed. Luckily she sailed through the test with flying colours.
Let’s shout about us
Donna is always very busy in the nursery office dealing with free entitlement, childcare vouchers, payments, meeting parents etc but every now and again she gets chance to do a bit of advertising and marketing for the nursery to spread the word about just how amazing we really are down here at Le Monde Petit Nursery. She’s been uploading pictures of our fantastic loose parts play ideas recently (see the last blog to learn all about this theory), and the ideas are still coming. At the beginning of December Donna met with Burnley’s very own radio station 2BR to talk about some advertising ideas. Last year we ran a brilliant ad on 2BR digital called “The One” – it was all about how parents come to look round and just get a feeling – they know we’re ‘the one’ to be trusted with their child– it was a fantastic concept and the ad was lovely. We have even pinched the strapline for our banner outside the building.
The 2BR team were about to record the Christmas and New Year messages from local businesses and we really wanted to be a part of this and say thanks to all our customers for their custom for the last year – so Donna got to go and visit the 2BR studios and record our very own message! Have you heard them? There was one wishing everyone a Happy Christmas, and then one to spread New Year joy.
Donna got a full guided tour of the studios whilst spying Paul Winstanley doing his show live through the window. It was very exciting. I wonder what she’ll get up to this month?
