YOUNGSTERS celebrated leaving nursery by holding a “graduation” party with their friends.
The farewell graduation and disco was held for nine children from the Kiddikins Nursery who are set to start school life.
Youngsters dressed up in hats and gowns and were presented with a framed photograph, a book of photographs and a DVD of their time in nursery. Staff at the nursery, which is based within the Sure Start Children’s Centre in Hindpool Close, on Hartlepool’s Central Estate, arranged the party.
Nursery manager Gill Gibson said: “Children said a fond farewell to friends who are leaving to start school.
“The graduation and disco was complete with gold invitations and cloak and gown presentation.
“Although this is an exciting time for children it is quite sad when they leave the nursery. Cook Rebecca Gibson provided the buffet and acted as DJ.”
