A GROUP of Scarborough children are making new friends as Childhaven Nursery School welcomes its new starters.

The nursery school, in Belgrave Crescent, has taken on ten three-year-old starters this term.

To mark the new additions parents were invited to join in a special story session with teacher Helen McCourt.

Headteacher Jane Pepper said: “They are settling in to the routine and really enjoying everything the nursery has to offer, especially the outdoor area.

“Their key workers visit the children at home and that really helps them to feel safe and secure.

“The older children are also helping them get used to go what goes on at nursery.”

The nursery has 104 places in total for three to four-year-olds, and has also been celebrating the success of its ‘Play and Learn’ sessions for two-year-olds.

Ms Pepper said: “We have a specially resourced room for the youngest children and we have been delighted with how well the two-year-olds have made progress.

“They are having great fun and the staff love working with them. They are such interesting little people.”

Since September the nursery has been the home of Falsgrave Children’s Centre, meaning there are even more activities for parent and children.

Ms Pepper added: “It has been very exciting year with lots of changes.”
