There were bittersweet celebrations at Greengables Day Nursery in Owlsmoor as children marked the end of their time at the setting with a glittering graduation ceremony and family fun day, surrounded by their friends, families and proud practitioners.
Dressed in traditional gowns and mortar boards, pre-schoolers from the award-winning setting on Yeovil Road were delighted to collect their certificates of achievement, before posing for photos around the garden and enjoying attractions including face painting.
As part of the festivities, families also enjoyed a range of festival inspired food stalls, as well as taking part in exciting carnival games including hook a duck and a tombola, raising over £1,000 for Bliss, which will now go towards helping babies born premature or sick.
Greengables Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Julia Grant explained;
“We had a fantastic day celebrating our 2022 graduates and we are thrilled to be donating to such a worthy cause as a result. Although this is a happy milestone, the occasion is a bittersweet one as we are saying goodbye to children that we have cared for since they were babies. We are so proud of all their achievements and wish them all the best for the future.”
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.
