Letchworth’s Garden City Academy officially has a new nursery following the purpose-built block’s ceremonial opening on Thursday.
The new nursery block, dubbed Saplings, means an extra 30 school places for the town.
And Councillor John Booth, chairman of North Herts District Council, was there with his wife Helen to cut the ribbon and let the kids try on their ceremonial chains.
“We are all delighted,” said Jenny Redgrove, head of the Radburn Way school.
“The old nursery is now a reception classroom. The new block has its own outside area with a small forest area for the children to explore and investigate safely.
