A Widnes nursery and pre school has opened an extension to its playrooms and welcomed children back after the Easter break.

Wilmere Lane Nursery and Pre School, which takes babies from the age of 12 weeks and children up to school age, now has space for youngsters to explore different areas of play.

Manager Lynne Billington said: “We want to provide an environment that inspires awe and wonder in each and every children we care for and our new pre school room certainly does that.

“We put a lot of thought into the layout of the environment as well as the resources.

“The children are able to use real china plates and porcelain dolls in their play as well as an old typewriter and an overhead projector.

“This encourages the children to be curious and their play can be open-ended and not predetermined.”
