There's still time to shine! Find out how you can enter the most prestigious awards in the early years sector.
The countdown to the Nursery World Awards has begun and once again we are looking forward to a fantastic evening of celebration on 30 September, when the winners are announced at a dinner and ceremony at The Brewery in London.
If you would like to be up there on that stage, there is still time to enter for an award.
Our winners are chosen by a distinguished panel of expert judges that is representative of the diversity of disciplines and organisations that make up the sector. The judges will have the knowledge and experience to assess each entry according to its objectives and available resources and budget.
