Ditchingham Day Nursery has been given a fresh new look thanks to a £5,000 grant from Norfolk County Council.

The nursery’s owl room, which is designed for children aged three to five, has been given a new floor and cleaning facilities - fitted at a lower height for the children to allow them to be more hands on.

The room was officially opened on Tuesday attended by children and their parents and was decorated by a group of volunteers from Aviva’s Norwich offices.

Sharon Matthews, director of operations for The Benjamin Foundation, the charity which runs the nursery, said: “The whole room is completely refreshed and it looks amazing.

“It is a much more suitable environment for the children to take the next steps towards learning to get them ready for school.

“They have reacted to it so well and have been playing really nicely.

“It is much more stimulating for them and it is also a lovely environment for staff to work in.”
