Delight as nursery is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted once again

Have your say

NURSERY children were thrilled when the Royal Air Force flew in for a Ground Force-style makeover at a pre-school.

A team of RAF military nurses helped plant beds of new flowers at Tops Nursery at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Cosham.

Children chipped in as the nurses got to work to create two sensory beds and a sandpit at the pre-school as well as tidying up the garden area.

Nursery manager Diane Bunday said: ‘The children really enjoyed seeing the RAF personnel in their uniforms and were keen to help them out.

‘We are really grateful. There are some things we just do not get round to doing like tidying up the garden and planting new flowers so it is a relief.

‘It’s a weight off my shoulders and has enhanced the children’s environment.’

Tops Nursery is mostly used by hospital staff and patients but is open to the general public.
