Graduating 4-year-olds: Inspiration for their successful future
Posted 28th June 2012
This year, 48 4 year-olds will be leaving the One World Nursery at Hackney Community College and moving onto their primary schools.
The nursery children are an important part of the college community and as part of the college ethos of celebrating success, their graduation day was a day to remember.
Parents and carers proudly watched their children graduate wearing traditional mortar boards and gowns. All children received a graduation certificate and wished well for their successful future at school.
Yvonne Daley, Early Years Education Coordinator said “48 Children Graduated from One World Nursery on 27th June. The parents welcomed the children with loud applause as they took to their seats. The children looked absolutely fabulous in their gowns of red, yellow and blue. They showed a real sense of achievement as they received their certificates.”
Yvonne went on to say “It was a sad and happy moment, for us. Some of the children have been at the nursery since they were 6 months old, and to see them actually graduating was overwhelming for all of us”. At the event, she told the parents that this gradation ceremony could be drawn on as inspiration for their children’s future.
Children, parents and staff enjoyed the day together. Other activities included face painting, henna painting, physical activities, a barbecue, music and dancing.
One World Nursery is a separate building within the landscaped grounds of Hackney Community College’s shoreditch Campus. It is registered for 84 children aged 6 months to 4 years. The nursery provides places for the college’s students and staff, as well as a number of places for other local people. It was awarded grade 2 (good) in its last OFSTED inspection.
