Jungle party for Julia Durbin Day Nursery graduates
There were celebrations all round at Julia Durbin Day Nursery in Headington as pre-schoolers marked the end of their time at the setting with a jungle themed party.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Roosevelt Drive, children dressed in traditional gowns for a special ceremony, before receiving their scrolls of achievement, gifts and a bespoke graduation frame with a photograph from the occasion, before gathering in their beautifully decorated classroom for the festivities.
The delighted pre-schoolers then enjoyed animal face painting from creative practitioners, a party tea and a stunning specially-created safari cake to ensure the day was a special one, despite scaled back celebrations due to covid-restrictions.
Julia Durbin Day Nursery Manager, Emma Wallbridge explained;
“Everything we do here at Julia Durbin is focused on sending happy, confident and fully prepared pre-schoolers into mainstream schooling. Although we are celebrating this milestone, the occasion is a bittersweet one as we are saying goodbye to children that we have looked after since they were babies. We are so proud of all their achievements and wish them all the best for their next adventure.”
