Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

NURS­ERY kids cel­e­brated step­ping up to pri­mary school with their own grad­u­a­tion day.

The chil­dren, who will be leav­ing Kid­sun­lim­ited nurs­ery in Tyther­ing­ton, based at Tyther­ing­ton Busi­ness Park, to go to pri­mary school, held a grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony for par­ents and staff.

Dur­ing the day all the chil­dren tak­ing part wore grad­u­a­tion hats and gowns and took it in turns to play a va­ri­ety of mu­si­cal in­stru­ments.

They also sang songs that rep­re­sented each stage of their jour­ney through pre-school, and at the end of the per­for­mance each child was pre­sented with a grad­u­a­tion toy bear and a cer­tifi­cate.

Lor­raine Roberts, the nurs­ery man­ager, said: “The staff, chil­dren and Beryl – who is the nurs­ery’s mu­sic teacher – have been work­ing very hard to put the per­for­mance to­gether to share with par­ents. They started with a song about Kid­sun­lim­ited and how the chil­dren love to learn and play each day, then an au­tumn ‘pump­kin song’ was next and af­ter that a Christ­mas song which they sang in French.

“The chil­dren have en­joyed a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent themed play ar­eas through­out their time here and as the post of­fice was a firm favourite with all the kids they de­cided to sing the theme to Post­man Pat.

“For the very last per­for­mance of the day they sang ‘the Good­bye Song’ which brought tears to ev­ery body in the room.”

“All the par­ents said how much they en­joyed the cer­e­mony and were very im­pressed with all the work that the staff and stu­dents had put into the day.

“One par­ent said what a great way it was to end out jour­ney to­gether.

“I was so proud of all my staff team, the chil­dren were a credit and en­joyed ev­ery minute, as I said to all my fam­i­lies it has been an ab­so­lute plea­sure be­ing al­lowed to be­come a part of their fam­i­lies and I wish them all the best for their new ad­ven­ture off to big school.”
