Interactive play area officially opened at Alresford nursery
AN interactive play area has been officially opened in an Alresford nursery.
On Friday (July 4) children and parents of Patchwork Day Nursery & Pre-School, based at Perins School, celebrated the launch of the new garden at a farmyard garden party, including a surprise visit from Peppa Pig.
It now features a soil kitchen, extended sand pit, raised planters, stepping stones and a paved area for water play.
Nicola Baxter, manager, said: “We have been looking to develop the nursery garden since the opening of our Pre-School in 2011 where the children enjoy the garden so much. The landscaping of our nursery garden brings this up to the same standard and creates a fantastic space for the little ones to play.”
Perins’ Event Coordinator, Jamie Lawrence, said: “It’s lovely to see the children having such a good time and exploring the new garden features.”
Last July the nursery celebrated its 20th birthday, holding a reunion party for children who had attended the nursery over the years as well as their parents and ex-staff. It was such a success that the staff decided to make it an annual event.
