Celebrations as MP Darren Jones opens the new Oasis Academy Long Cross Nursery

Wet weather didn’t stop local residents from attending the Oasis Academy Long Cross Summer Fair and grand opening of the academy nursery last weekend.

Wet weather didn’t stop local residents from attending the Oasis Academy Long Cross Summer Fair and grand opening of the academy nursery on Saturday 15th June.

Oasis Academy Long Cross is proud to announce that its nursery now offers places for 2-year-olds, as well as places for 3 to 5-year-olds. To celebrate being able to take children at an earlier age, the nursery has been re-branded with its very own logo.

People were given tours of the nursery classrooms, met members of the nursery team and enjoyed nursery branded cakes.

The Summer Fair was also a roaring success. Parents, children and local residents took part in a range of activities including balloon modelling, crafts, raffles and a tombola.

The money raised from the Summer Fair will be put towards fun activities for the children, including the Big Bounce Day and movie nights.

Karen Sheppard, Principal of Oasis Academy Long Cross, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to offer places for younger children in the Long Cross nursery. Our nursery provides the best start to school life. I’m also extremely grateful to our parents’ group who have organised our Summer Fair, and work hard throughout the year to support the academy in raising funds that help us provide exceptional learning experiences for our children.”

MP for Lawrence Weston, Darren Jones said: “As a former pupil at Oasis Academy Long Cross I am delighted to open the Oasis Academy Long Cross nursery, especially as so many mums, dads and carers will benefit from their children starting nursery from 2-years-old.”
