St Mary’s Catholic Primary School have celebrated the opening of its pre-school with the Bishop of Northampton Peter Doyle cutting the ribbon and holding a mass to mark the occasion.
After the ribbon was cut guests looked around the pre-school unit and spoke with staff and children who use it.
Representatives from Central Bedfordshire Council, some of the school’s governors and members of the school council joined the pupils at the opening.
Headteacher Steve Chiswell said: “We are incredibly proud of our new pre-school and it is clearly already benefiting the children who use it.
“We would be delighted to speak with anyone interested in enrolling their two-year-old here, and to show them just how good the facilities are.
“We provide a happy and safe learning environment with exciting, play-based educational activities for children aged from two years old, as well as wraparound sessions for three and four year olds who attend our nursery.
“Our play-based curriculum incorporates children’s interests alongside exciting topics.
“We work hard to develop the prime areas of the Early Years Curriculum - personal, social and emotional development, communication and language and physical development - as well as planning stimulating activities which link to the rest of the Early Years Curriculum.”
