Fledglings Nursery at Upshire School New Building Grand Opening

Author: Upshire Primary School Published: 22nd June 2016 22:25


Cllr Jeane Lea Chairman of EFDC opening Hatchlings new building with Peppa Pig 

New provision for 2 Year olds opened

Fledglings Pre-school at Upshire Primary School in Waltham Abbey celebrated the official opening of its new purpose built ‘Hatchlings’ provision for 2 year olds and its transformed and extended garden facility on Monday 13th June 2016.

We were especially honoured that Mrs Jeane Lea, the Chairman of the Epping Forest District Council agreed to officiate the proceedings.

The staff and children were joined by members of the governing body and the children were extremely excited by a special guest appearance from ‘Peppa Pig’.

The new facility was funded by a Local Authority Free Early Years Entitlement for two year olds Capital Building Works Expansion Grant and has enabled us to provide a safe and welcoming environment for up to 20 two year olds in both our morning and afternoon sessions.

New furniture, play equipment, educational toys and resources have been added to create a stimulating environment and will ensure that the children have the best possible start to their early years education.

The garden has been transformed with raised flower beds, an allotment, reading area and artificial grass which will enable our children to experience ‘free flow’ learning both inside and outside all year round.  The new building is attached to the Fledglings Nursery with existing 3 and 4 year old provision.

For more information on this new facility please see Upshire Primary School website or call 01992 715567
