Off to Avenue Nursery to open their splendid new playground. Quite an amazing feat – given that all the concrete and building materials had to be brought in by hand by the builder. Previn seems to have decided that this would be done and done well and to time – and it was.
A lovely little ceremony. Mary – the head of the nursery – told us the story of how the work was done and then two of the classes sang a special song for the occasion and individual children from one class read out their own stories of what this new playground meant to them. They loved the surface, the space, not having to put on boots to avoid mud, the toys and so on.
From where I stand, this is a nursery with superb facilities but also with completely dedicated staff who make sure the childrens’ early years are the best they can be; after all – what they experience in these years will be the foundation for the rest of their lives.
Congratulations to all who worked so hard to make this playgound happen!
