Norwich nursery celebrates leavers

Parents of children at a nursery in Norwich had reason to celebrate after watching their little ones graduate from nursery.

Staff at the Just Learning nursery, in Thorpe St Andrew, hosted the graduation ceremony with a twist for the 18 children who are due to leave the nursery and start primary school later this year.

Proud parents gathered to watch their children perform the book Commotion In The Ocean by Julia Donaldson, and sing a song, before collecting their certificates.

Nursery manager, Kirsty Jenkins, said a few words about each individual child. The children were then presented with a special certificate, signifying their achievements.

After the ceremony the children were treated to a surprise disco and a balloon modeller came to make balloon shapes for them.

Afterwards, the nursery manager said: 'The excitement on the faces of the children was matched by the proud looks from their parents.

'It's so rewarding to see the children blossom throughout their time at the nursery and they have all achieved success in every area of learning and development.
