45 children took part in a ceremony to commemorate their graduation from Nightingales Day Nursery at Airedale Hospital.

The children were invited by special appointment to attend nursery with their parents to be presented with their graduation cap and gown, celebrate and receive some gifts to commemorate their time at nursery and mark the important milestone of moving up to primary school.

The graduation ceremonies took place on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 August.

“It was a lovely day, filled with lots of happy tears and laughter as the children and parents looked back on their time at Nightingales.”

Around you, all who love you

Within you, all you need
