Bright Horizons Millhouses Day Nursery in Sheffield has celebrated its preschool graduation in an emotional day for both parents and staff.
With the majority of children graduating having been with the nursery since the beginning, staff said their farewells in the midst of a party atmosphere.
Barney Baloney was on hand to entertain the children throughout the day with party games, while a picnic was also held.
The children also received a special goody bag from their key worker in preparation for the next step on their education journey.
“We are all very proud of the children and glad we were able to enjoy the graduation celebrations with them,” said Nursery Manager Jo Whittingham. “We wish them well in their new adventures.”
