A WHARFEDALE nursery has bid a fond farewell to its young 'graduates'.

Chapter One Childcare held its annual Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, July 7 for those children who are leaving to start school.

The youngsters, who donned gowns and mortar boards for the occasion, enjoyed singing and dancing to some of their favourite songs.

They were also presented with a certificate, a framed photograph of themselves, and a Chapter One Teddy bear.

The nursery meanwhile, which has now been in its new base - the former Farnley Primary School building - for two years, will soon be opening a fully outdoors nursery among its woodland.
