building blocks in place as work on new nursery begins

Staff, children and parents at kidsunlimited Fulbourn are all extremely excited that work has begun on a brand new nursery at Capital Park in Fulbourn.

The new nursery, which will replace kidsunlimited’s existing nursery at the nearby Ida Darwin Hospital should be complete in time for children to transfer by March 2014. While the work is taking place building the nursery, children from the current site are taking regular trips to watch the diggers and builders’ progress and are enjoying seeing how the building is developing and speculating about what it will look like.

Once built, the nursery will boast six large home-bases, each tailored to the children’s specific age groups. There will also be three large external gardens for children to discover and explore. In addition to this, the nursery will be set amongst beautiful grounds in which the children can take regular walks and adventures and enjoy activites such as forest school and mud kitchens.

Michelle Knowles, Nursery Manager at kidsunlimited Fulbourn, said "I’m so excited that work has started on our new nursery, the plans look fantastic and I’m sure the children will absolutely love it."

Jeremy Clark, Development Director at kidsunlimited, said "It's wonderful to be opening a brand new nursery in Fulbourn. We have been working hard behind the scenes to design a nursery which will offer a variety of features to develop and stimulate the children. As always at kidsunlimited our fundamental aim is to offer the best possible environment in which children can flourish and naturally love learning forever."
