Fancy dress and French songs at nursery’s graduation ceremony


Four and five-year-olds at a local nursery came dressed to impress at their graduation ceremony, wearing costumes showing what they want to be when they grow up.

The graduation ceremony at The Hollies Private Day Nursery in Chorley took place in the nursery’s outdoor play area with the nursery’s goats, rabbits and guinea pigs looking on.

Fire fighters, pilots, princesses, jockeys, Batman and Superman were all in attendance, showing that Chorley’s little ones have big ambitions. Some children even came dressed as their number one heroes, The Hollies nursery staff!

The children’s dance teacher helped them to choreograph a special dance for each profession, which they performed for parents on the big day.

Children also demonstrated their Spanish language skills with the help of their Spanish teacher and sang a rendition of their favourite French song.

The ceremony ended with each child being presented with a certificate telling them what made them special to nursery staff at The Hollies.

There were tears from a number of parents who were proud of their children and just a little sad to see them growing up so quickly.

The Hollies Nursery Manager Karen Fowler said the nursery staff shed their fair share of tears too, adding: “The Hollies staff form close bonds with the children and work hard to get to know each and every child well. It was really quite emotional to say goodbye to them all.

“The children’s wonderful performances at the ceremony proved they’re ready for school now, so although we’re sad to see them go we’re very happy in the knowledge that they’re ready for their next adventure!”
