There were bittersweet celebrations at Woodberry Day Nursery in Winchmore Hill as children marked the end of their time at the setting with a special ‘awards ceremony’ themed graduation event, surrounded by their friends, family and proud practitioners.
Wearing summer dresses and suits complete with bowties, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Church Hill took to the stage, where they performed two songs for their parents, followed by a speech from Woodberry Quality Manager, Nikol Moravova, who brought the crowd to tears as she reflected on the past few years.
As part of the festivities, children were delighted to collect their certificates of achievement, as well as a rose, a goodie bag filled with stationary for their transition to school and a bespoke ‘Woodberry News’ newspaper complete with their photograph on the front page.
Following the ceremony, children and parents sat down to enjoy a celebratory lunch, complete with fruit platters, sandwiches, vegetable sticks and hummus, crisps and muffins, before greeting the entertainer who engaged the group in a range of party games, gave out gold medals for their efforts and played party music to set the scene.
Parents also showed their gratitude for Woodberry Day Nursery colleagues with a speech to thank them for their dedication to their children’s learning journey, before presenting them with an array of generous parting gifts by way of appreciation.
Woodberry Day Nursery Quality Manager, Nikol Moravova explained;
“We are hugely proud of our pre-schoolers and everything they have achieved in their time with us, including navigating the pandemic. We will be very sad to see them go but are confident that the learning opportunities we have provided them with will stand them in the best possible stead for their next steps into school life.”
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
