A new nursery complete with art studio has opened at William Bellamy Primary School.
The building, which allows the school to extend its nursery provision from 104 to 156 places, was officially opened last month.
Play dough, painting, climbing, water play and dressing up were tried out by families who were invited to take the first look.
Headteacher Joanne Preston said: “I’m delighted that an increased number of children will benefit from a place in our school nursery before they start their year in reception classes. “Our assessments show that this leads to improved learning and development at the end of the early years foundation stage.”
