The Nursery's owner told the Times that some of the children had been with her team since they were babies.

Jackie Hardie said: "Some of the children leaving us have been at The Nursery since they were babies and we will miss them a lot.

"However, we have been helping them to prepare for primary school for some time and they are ready for this next step.

"We wish them all good luck and look forward to hearing all about their exciting new experiences.”

Marking the end of the children’s preschool days and celebrating their next new adventure, the event held at Portishead Youth Centre, involved disco dancing, poems, stories, fun and games.
