Christchurch Pre-School Nursery, in Bayston Hill near Shrewsbury, marked the opening of its new building with a ribbon cutting event, party and cake.
Based on the Oakmeadow School site in the village, the new building, built by the Little Village Group, will be used as a break-out area for the older children at the nursery as they prepare to move across to the primary school.
Staff, parents and children welcomed those who had helped plans for the building become a reality - including members of the Bayston Hill Parish Council, who donated £500 and headmistress of Oakmeadow School Carla Whelan.
Diane Scoggins, manager of the nursery, said it was great to celebrate with the children and the people who had helped with the building project.
“This will be an excellent addition to the nursery - the children are all very excited and cannot wait to get inside,” she said.
“It will also be used to meet with parents and to allow the children to have one to one time with their key workers.
“We are so grateful to all of the people involved, to Chrisbeon Office Supplies who donated the furniture for inside the building, to the parish council for their donation, to the committee for their hard work, and of course to Oakmeadow School and Christchurch for their constant support.”
Christchurch takes children between two and five years and the setting also supports children who have learning difficulties and disabilities and those who speak English as a second language.
The staff and committee are still raising money towards the building costs and a charity quiz night is being held at The Compasses Pub in Bayston Hill on March 23 at 8pm. Everyone is welcome.
The nursery recently rebranded and unveiled a new website at www.christchurchpreschoolnursery.co.uk which parents can visit for more information.
