There will be lots of busy green fingers this year at the Pelican Centre Centre this summer.
They have installed raised beds for the children to learn about gardening and to explore the outside environment. We have been able to donate new equipment so the children can get hands on.
The Pelican Childrens Centre opened its doors in September 1997 to provide parents who wanted to return to work or further their education with affordable childcare. They have gone from strength to strength and have been awarded “Outstanding” by OFSTED which is the highest grade in childcare standards.
