There wasn’t ‘a dry eye’ as Seabrook Day Nursery staff in Luton said goodbye to their graduating class with a disco party and presentation. A slide show featuring the 26 graduates at play during their time at the three times Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ day nursery in Lewsey Road, and dressed in cap and gown, had everybody reaching for their tissues, said Manager Emma Brodigan. “Everything we do here is focused on sending happy, confident and fully prepared children into mainstream schooling. We are celebrating that today but saying goodbye to children we have looked after since they were babies is very difficult,” she said. The Graduation disco at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital Social Club is a highlight in the nursery calendar with staff and parents contributing food and the preschoolers donning their party clothes. Each child was presented with a certificate and a photograph of them wearing their cap and gown. One of the ‘stars of the show’ was four-year-old Frankie Holmes who has been at the nursery since he was a baby. Describing Frankie as a master of the interactive smart board at the nursery and an ‘IT wizard’ in the making, Frankie’s ‘Key Person’, practitioner Stephanie Neville, said: “He is an absolute joy to have around so I know he will do very well at school. I am excited for him because I know he is ready for this next step in his learning journey, but I will miss him dreadfully,” she said.
