The Graduates 2015

Aug 3, 2015 | News stories

A NEW chapter beckons for the 22 pre-school children at Stockton’s Little Ladybirds Day Nursery, so staff sent them off with a graduation ceremony.

The children donned red gowns and caps for the special graduation ceremony where each was presented with a scroll certificate by their Nursery Key Person.

Parents, grandparents and relatives looked on at the special event, some with a tear in their eyes.

The annual Graduation Ceremony has become a much-anticipated special event at the nursery on Preston Farm Industrial Estate. It marks the end of the children’s time at the nursery, where some have been regulars since they were babies, and the beginning of full-time education at school.

Jennifer Thompson, Manager at Little Ladybirds, said: “It is always a little sad seeing them leave and I know our staff will miss them. But it is such an exciting time for them and we love to see them move on and grow.”
