The nursery school has held a graduation event every year since 1994, and this year 10 four year-olds took part in the ceremony.

Nursery manager Samantha Witten said: “It was a really lovely day. It was well-attended by the whole nursery family and a great occasion.

“I think it’s almost like a university graduation. Given the importance of the years the children spend with us, it seems fitting to mark it. Some of them are with us 50 hours a week, some have been with us since they were babies. The staff become such a huge part of their lives.”

The nursery is family-run, and the ceremony gave parents the chance to socialise, too.

Samantha added: “Often people are rushing in and out to drop children off so this was a chance for parents to meet each other.”
