A CHILDREN’S nursery is in the running for a design award.

The Hopscotch day nursery, in Lee-on-the-Solent, has made it to the final round of the annual Nursery Management Today 2011 Awards.

Nursery staff will find out whether they have scooped the national award for the best designed nursery at a ceremony next month.

Childcare manager Lorna Wright said: ‘To be a finalist in this particular award category is fantastic recognition of the work of all the team.

‘The design of the nursery created an environment where each child can explore, play and learn with ease, comfort, and security, maximising their development opportunities.

‘We wanted a nursery that parents felt happy and confident in and one that was open, light and appealing to all.’
