The new building has two purpose-built classrooms, for two-year-olds, and three-to-four-year-olds, in addition to a staffroom, office and kitchen.

Fundraising began two years ago to replace the old mobile building which was beginning to fall apart, and become unusable.

Margaret Hollingworth, chair of Scarning pre-school, said: “We were very fortunate to have had help from so many people and we were able to start the new build in February this year.”

The finished build also has folding doors that allow the space to become one large classrooms, laundry facilities, and toilets and changing areas, including disabled access. The pre-school has also received a grant for a grassed area to be covered with Astro turf.

It was opened to the public on Sunday, September 3. It will also hold an after-school club and breakfast club, for children aged up to 11.
