A KNUTSFORD nursery is celebrating its 20th anniversary in style after recently applying to extend its opening hours.

Poppies Day Nursery on Sugar Pit Lane last week celebrated 20 years of providing day care to more than 40 children from birth to five years old.

Since its opening in 1995, Poppies Day Nursery has gone from strength to strength and is now equipped to accommodate more than 60 children.

Julie Dawn Potts, speaking on behalf of the Nursery, said: “Wow we are 20 years old. We have a fantastic, well -established day nursery.

“The Poppies team, some of whom have worked together for over a decade, moved across from memorial house in the spring of 2013.

“They moved into the newly refurbished building on Sugar Pit Lane, and have enjoyed being in their new environment ever since.

“The pre-school children even have their own Coach House, which provides a gentle stepping stone between nursery and school and we have just started a fantastic new 'baking club' so that parents can have some catch-up time.”

The baking sessions, which are now available to children at Poppies, run on a Friday afternoon from 2pm to 3.30pm and are £5 a session.

Poppies also runs Spanish lessons, art lessons, outings and other activities.
