STAFF and children at a popular pre-school celebrated the centre’s fifth birthday in its new premises.

Learning Alliance Langley Mill Childcare centre hosted a fancy dress birthday celebration with youngsters enjoying plenty of party games including pass the parcel. Before moving into its new premises on Bailey Brook Drive, staff could only provide daycare to children above the age of two as they did not have a baby unit.

Now the centre takes on youngsters from the ages of nought to eight. Centre manager Sue Bamford has worked at the pre-school for 25 years and has seen its numbers rise from 12 to more than 100 children. She said: “Our job satisfaction comes from knowing we do a lot for the children and the families.”
