"It is wonderful to see this building transform.

"It is so lovely to see the vacant space turn out how it has. Thank you to everyone who has been involved in making this possible."

The nursery and preschool opened on Thursday, October 5. 

Guests received a tour of the nursery and were treated to a Happy Days cake and cupcakes made by the nursery chef, Dawn Evans.

Ashley Webb, manager, said: "This is an exciting opportunity for staff and children to experience a purpose-built nursery with stimulating resources and a unique curriculum offering the children the opportunity to develop to their full potential."

Nestled in the heart of Yew Tree Village, the nursery is a welcome addition to the local community and has already formed partnerships with local businesses, including Woodland View Care Home and the local dessert shop, Droitwich Desserts.

The team at Happy Days Droitwich said it is looking forward to welcoming more families into the nursery as they continue to grow.
