Night Owls helped Therfield Pre-School mark a series of successes by bringing in night owls to meet the children.

Pre-school leader Tina Downing said: “This is a really exciting time. Having been rated ‘outstanding’ in our most recent Ofsted inspection, working towards our own purpose-built premises in the future, and as we are celebrating our 15th year we had to do something memorable.

“We are very grateful Night Owls made the event possible for us.

“Thanks also to Therfield First School, who joined us to celebrate – meaning all children from both settings have been able to benefit from this experience.”
