A NURSERY based at Burton’s Queen’s Hospital has celebrated its 10th anniversary by burying a time capsule.
Staff and children from the Co-operative Childcare Burton nursery, based at the Belvedere Road site, lowered the capsule into the ground and revealed that it would not opened until 2024.
The box featured items such as pictures and handmade masks as well as letters from children who have previously attended the nursery.
Sian Edwards, manager at The Co-operative Childcare nursery Burton, said: “Filling a time capsule is the perfect way to mark the anniversary and the children had a great time deciding what they wanted to bury.
“We have planned to open the time capsule in another 10 years’ time adding to the memories already inside and to see how things have changed.
“Both adults and children at the nursery have really enjoyed celebrating our birthday.
“It’s also been great to welcome former children and their parents back and find out what they have been doing since they left.
“Two of our colleagues have also been working here since the nursery opened and it was great to hear their stories from the nursery’s 10 year history.”
The time capsule was buried at a party held to celebrate the nursery reaching its 10 year milestone, and also follows the ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating the nursery achieved for the second time in a row.
Children who were previously cared for during its 10 year history were also invited to join in the celebrations and reminisce about their time growing up there.
The event saw £1,200 raised for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
