Sally-Ann Barker, the owner and manager of Potter’s House Preschool, said: “It was a lovely day and so nice to show what a fantastic community we have.

“We are a new preschool, we opened in September and have an amazing outdoor area.

“We are working towards becoming a Forest School so wanted as much to encourage the children to play outside as we can.

“I believe being outside has a huge impact on how well children develop and has a really positive impact on children’s early mental health.

“We organised a Daddy Building Day, where parents and grandparents and uncles and friends all came and helped build toys from pallets to develop our outdoor area.

“It was such an amazing day, our community of parents really came together and delivered.

“We have been outside all day and I’ve never seen the children so engaged and happy and playing so beautifully together.

“It was heartwarming to see the lengths people will go to for our next generation, we couldn’t be any more grateful to them all.

“This preschool is a dream come true for me and I never would have been able to imagine the kindness of our families.

“I’m so excited to be able to watch the children develop in such a stimulating environment.”
