A nursery whose funding was slashed after it was downgraded by Ofsted has proudly celebrated the end of term with a graduation ceremony.
Parents attended New Birth Day Nursery in East Ham on July 22 as certificates were dished out to 12 children.
Little’uns sang Let It Go from Frozen and were asked what they wanted to be when they grew up.
One four-year-old said he wanted to be a monster and another explained he wanted to a be a fish and work in a fish and chip shop.
Nursery manager Michaela Howard, 30, said: “Staff will miss the children dearly. We’ve watched them grow and develop.”

However, Michaela insisted the graduation proved their “keeping up a good name.”
