A KEIGHLEY day nursery staged a graduation ceremony for children moving up to primary school.

Town mayor Councillor John Kirby presented certificates to the young 'graduates', at Tiny Stars.

Parents were invited to attend the celebration.

The children could also enjoy a bouncy castle as part of the event.

A spokesperson for the nursery said: "We're extremely proud of each and every graduate.

"The children have shown immense growth and learning during their time at Tiny Stars.

"This graduation is not just about their readiness for school, but also the lifeskills they've developed here.

"Our sincere appreciation goes to our dedicated staff and the supportive parents, who have been our partners in fostering this nurturing and learning environment."

Cllr Kirby said it was "an absolute privilege" to be part of the celebration.

He added: "Seeing the joy in these young faces and their potential makes me optimistic about our future."
