Youngsters at Kiddi Caru’s Milton Keynes Walnut Tree day nursery made the most of the opportunity to celebrate their pre-school achievements.
Twenty children enjoyed a magical graduation ceremony – complete with gowns and mortarboards – ahead of starting primary school in September. After being presented with their graduation certificates the little learners were treated to a party tea and a big slice of graduation cake.
Senior nursery manager Louise Higgins said: “We hold a graduation ceremony every year as part of our programme of activities to help our pre-school children make the transition to primary school. Going to ‘big school’ can seem a little daunting, so we feel it’s important to remind the children about how much they have achieved and ensure that they have the confidence to continue to reach their full potential. It’s also a sad time for us though, and we will miss all of those leaving us this year very much.”
