Silver anniversary for Babraham Nursery
Babraham Nursery celebrated its 25th anniversary on Saturday (12) with a barbeque and fun day on its site at Babraham Institute.
Parents, children and staff, past and present, joined in the celebrations.
About 300 people enjoyed pony rides, go karts, a children’s entertainer, a disco and more.
There were numerous stalls, including a face painting stall, where all donations were given to the nursery’s chosen charity, CLIC Sargent.
Around £950 was raised through ticket sales, a raffle and other stalls, the proceeds of which will go towards purchasing a shelter for the garden area and some books for the home lending library.
Babraham Nursery is a non-profit Nursery and is part of the Babraham Institute.
It is primarily for children of staff at the Institute and first opened on 10th September 1990 with just one child and two staff.
Babraham Nursery currently has up to 90 children at any one time with around 40 staff.
In the holidays the nursery additionally operates a holiday playscheme for primary aged children which is accessed by families who previously attended the nursery and also the wider community.
