There was not a dry eye in the house when pre-school children from Little Ladybirds enjoyed a magical graduation ceremony.
The 24 children donned hats and gowns for the graduation ceremony watched by their proud parents and nursery staff.
Jennifer Thompson, nursery manager, said: “The children all came onto the stage to receive their graduation scroll. The parents were so proud and I think we even made some of them cry!”
After the ceremony, the children enjoyed a magic show and tea party. They were also given a slice of a special graduation cake made by the nursery’s cook, Julie.
Jennifer said: “It’s always sad to see our older children leaving but we know they will have a great time at school and we look forward to welcoming some new faces in September.”celebration, Little Ladybirds Children's Day Nursery graduation day, little ladybirds day nursery stockton, moving to school, pre-school
