|Children from Acorns Nursery in Eldwick, who will be leaving to begin school in September, are having a graduation party where the guest of honour will be Lord Mayor of Bradford, Coun Abid Hussain.
The private day nursery has arranged the party so that the children can celebrate their time at the nursery with their families and the staff before moving on to school.
The children will wear traditional graduation caps and gowns and will receive certificates marking their achievements at the nursery, at the ceremony on Tuesday 18 July. There will be a balloon release before they tuck in to a party lunch with their special guest.
One lucky child will also be made Mini Lord Mayor for the day and get to wear the city’s scaled-down Lord Mayoral robes,hat and chain of office.
Sophie Graham, Nursery Manager, said: “We look forward to this day every year as it gives the nursery and the parents a chance to celebrate the achievements made by all of the children at our pre-school. We are tremendously proud of the strong, resilient, independent and happy children they have become and we wish each and every one of them, the very best for the future as they start their new chapter at school.”
