A nursery marked the day children left to start school with a graduation event.

Playdays Nursery in Chigwell Road, South Woodford, welcomed pupils, families and friends to watch a special ceremony for the children on Sunday, August 4.

It celebrated 15 children moving on to eight schools. The event also featured an open day.

Nursery Manager Carly Clark said: "I felt the day was a huge success from start to finish, there were so many happy children and happy families - it was a great day!”

The graduates performed a song that they had practised for and were awarded a certificate and medal from Ms Clark.

The nursery also provided a bouncy castle, hook a duck, smoothie making, henna, sticker tattoos and face painting.
