A Hitchin pre-school has celebrated its children moving on to nursery with a graduation party.
The Angels pub off Bedford Road hosted the graduation day for the 24 Strathmore Pre-School leavers – with a party that saw lots of playing inside and outside, and fun creative activities for the youngsters.
Parents enjoyed watching a graduation speech and seeing their children receive certificates and gifts at a ceremony complete with academia-style mortarboard hats made out of black paper and string.
Pre-school leader Diane Grazette told the Comet: “Its an emotional time for staff and parents, and I would like to thank them all for entrusting them in our care.
“We have loved watching them grow and develop over the past years.
