Brent Knoll Primary has opened its new pre-school this week despite the lockdown.
The pre-school opened its doors on Tuesday morning to the first group of children and fifteen enjoyed their first day in the purpose-built classroom.
The room is fully fitted with a small kitchen area and toilet, air-conditioning and various play areas.
The pre-school is led by Hayley Richens and Joanna Wood, with Vicky Dickinson, Nicola Stevens and Helen Key in support.
Head teacher Chris Burman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “The whole school community was delighted to see the pre-school room up and running and it now means Brent Knoll can provide a 2 to 11 education for local families.”
“Several staff and volunteers worked through the holidays to ensure the room and garden area were ready on time.”
