Sand Dunes Nursery School celebrate the third birthday of their childcare service. The Nursery has been running since 1943 and in November 2009 the childcare service opened, offering full day care for children aged 0-5 years. Recently the children and parents enjoyed a party with games, face painting and balloon modelling to celebrate three successful and happy years since the childcare first opened. Highlights over the last three years have included being recognised as an Outstanding provider by OFSTED in April 2010, achieving the Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark in July 2011, celebrating the Queens Jubilee in June 2012, visits from local services such as the fire brigade and working in very close partnership with Seaforth Children's Centre, who part fund the childcare. In July 2012 we proudly said a fond farewell to children who have been with us since the beginning as babies and were moving on to Reception class in their new schools.
