We are SO PROUD and chuffed to bits that people nominated US for these categories. Words are simply not enough of how humbled we feel that Buttercup Lane Childminders are thought of in such high praise.

We are so Proud about our nominations at the CFL awards

The whole performance was managed from start to finish by the children of Leeds that are part of CFL. It was amazing. Everything was thought of, The venue, the Red Carpet, The lighting, the Sound, the Acts that appeared – it was all controlled and delivered with such professionalism it was simply an evening of pride and passion for delivering everything that Child Friendly Leeds is all about.

It’s the awards tonight and we are so excited to be going after we here at Buttercup Lane Childminders got nominated of Three Awards.

Although we don’t think we have been short listed we are so proud that we got nominated in the first place. Thanks to everyone that voted for us and its such a wonderful feeling of appreciation.

The awards is the very first one for Child Friendly Leeds and with the hundreds of people attending its sure going to be a special occasion.

Radio Aires Mission Christmas Appeal and our donated Christmas Presents for ChildrenWe have been to donate all the presents this morning. We met Rich and Naomi from the Radio Aire breakfast show. We took with us all the beautiful presents that we and our wonderful customers have donated to their Mission Christmas Cash for Kids Appeal.

A massive Thank you to all our Parents that contributed and your presents will make a childrens Christmas all that more special.

This year just like every year thousands of children in poverty will wake up to a Christmas without presents.

Over the last few years that Radio Aire have been running Radio Aire Cash for Kids, we here at Buttercup Lane Childminders have purchased extra Christmas presents and denoted them to the appeal. This year we have asked all our parents to buy just one extra present. A gift that we’ll take to Radio Aire who will give them to disadvantaged children to make their Christmas morning that little bit brighter.

Radio Aire’s Mission Christmas is looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0 to 18 years.

They are also excepting cash donations at various locations and shopping centres throughout Leeds. If you cant help – please do so and hopefully make someone’s Christmas that little bit extra special.

Buttercup Lane Childminders have also arranged for our extra special quest to help deliver our extra large box of presents to the Radio Aire studio’s and its our intention to try and get him mentioned on the radio. At some point in the next 2 weeks (work permitting) @LeedsTed will be making another appearance at East Ardsley Childminders and he will help us make Leeds a more Child Friendly place this Christmas. Its a sad thought to think that some children will be waking up this christmas and not have the luxury of opening one single present. Radio Aire’s Mission Christmas & Buttercup Lane Childminders contribution from our customers will help bring smiles to a number of children.

Making Leeds a child friendly city

child friendly leeds

This morning Karl visited Westerton Primary school with Jemma Stevens and delivered a Child Friendly Leeds presentation in Key Stage 2 assembly.

Although we were nervous, we delivered a confident, positive, educational, informative speech that was very thought provoking. All the children and staff were both
appreciative and impressed.

We must also mention that Sophie and Mollie delivered their sections clearly and precise and they were just terrific.

Due to our research and material that we were delivering we were sure to have a very captive audience and it must be said that the children paid attention throughout the presentation, they listened and interacted with a great willingness, it showed that they had an interest as the subject matter meant something to them all.

Our presentation was met with such positivity that Westerton Primary have added the presentation to their website, follow this link to see it. If you want to get involved in Child Friendly Leeds use the detail on the final page of the presentation or see the LINKS on the right or get intouch with us here at Buttercup Lane and we will gladly point you in the right direction.

Buttercup Lane Childminders would like to thank the entire school at Westerton, Mrs Makin and her team work wonders and all the pupils are a credit to themselves, their parents and the community.
