Last year's awards were the biggest and best yet, culminating in a fantastic evening at London's Grand Connaught Rooms, and we are looking forward to an even more successful event this year.

Could you emulate the achievements of Red Hen Day Nursery, our Nursery of the Year, Nursery Chain of the Year Bertram, or Tootsies, which took the Nursery Food Award for the second time?

This year, we have introduced a topical new category, Provision for Two-Year-Olds, especially for those settings offering the free entitlement for that age group under the Government's programme.
