Children donned caps and gowns to mark their graduation from Roose Nursery, in Barrow.

Staff at the nursery have been helping the tots prepare for reception by involving them in school life and planning activities with the current reception class.

They also enjoyed a sports day with members of other nursery schools in the area.

“We held the graduation to celebrate the children’s achievements and the end of the school year,” said nursery manager Hazel Bell.

“The majority are going to Roose School and some are going to Low Furness.

“We do lots of outdoor play and have lots of fun.”

From September Roose Nursery will offer wrap around care, opening from 7am to 6pm every day, and a new build, due to start in the autumn, will increase capacity by 50 places.

“We’re meeting the demand of what the parents are wanting,” said Mrs Bell.

“We’ve been blown away by the response for the breakfast and after school clubs.”
