Children in the Nursery Class for Three and Four Year Olds have enjoyed their first visit Park View Residential Home on Chorley New Road. The children shared songs and stories with the residents, as well as getting involved in art activities. One gentleman said that the Nursery Class had made his day after the first visit!

The children will return to visit the Park View residents again throughout the year.

Notable benefits for the children included improvements in language development and confidence. Read more about this here.
