The children had an amazing experience in the building site, which provided them with lots of new information about the job role of a builder and how their new building is going to be built.

John Cleary explained the purpose of the visit. “It’s great to get the kids involved like this because then they start to understand, in a fun way, the dangers involved in building sites.

“It’s also nice for them to see how their new buildings will take shape!”

Nursery Director Lucy Price said, “The children had an amazing experience in the building site, which provided them with lots of new information about the job role of a builder and how their new building is going to be built.” 

Woodentots Nursery, based at HMS Collingwood, offers childcare from the age of 3 months to 4 years specifically for Service personnel.

This new building work was partly funded by a LIBOR Fund award and has already enabled the Nursery to refurbish two buildings and demolish two others prior to building brand new replacement facilities.

Weather permitting, building work should all be completed by March 2018 and John has promised to host the children on another visit so they can keep an eye on the builders’ progress!
