HAPPY children said a fond farewell as they ‘graduated’ from nursery.
The youngsters, who were at Alton Manor Day Nursery, Gregorys Way, Belper, were saying goodbye to pre-school and getting ready for real school next month.
Staff at the nursery gave them a special send off by holding graduation proms.
The youngsters, known as Clever Crocs, dressed up in gowns, were presented with graduation certificates, and enjoyed games, drinks and nibbles.
And watching on were the children’s proud parents.
It should act as the ideal preparation for when the children graduate from university in about 17 years time!
