Scorton nursery celebrates 20th anniversary

A Scorton nursery has celebrated its 20th anniversary with a party for children, staff and parents.

Little Learners Nursery Centre opened on June 18, 1998 and has provided childcare for hundreds of children during its 20 years of business.

Celebrations lasted all day at the nursery on Monday.

There was a disco provided by Be Cool Entertainment and a live music sing along and puppet show by Martin the Music Man.

The children dressed up in party clothes or fancy dress, had their faces painted and enjoyed a barbecue lunch in the garden provided by the nursery’s new chef Karen Paling.

Manager Sarah Laws said: “The nursery has gone from strength to strength over the years providing local families with childcare for babies from six weeks to children up to the age of 14 years, with the nursery receiving an ‘outstanding’ judgement from Ofsted at their last inspection 18 months ago.

“The nursery currently employs 28 local staff who all work extremely hard to ensure the best outcomes for all their children.”

The nursery is now giving the children Forest School learning opportunities by visiting the local woods in the village with staff  training to achieve their level 3 qualification so the nursery can be an accredited Forest School.
