Little Angels Meets Royalty

Some of our children from the Highbury Nursery were very lucky to meet a ‘real life princess’. The Duchess of Cambridge,Kate was visiting a charity nearby the nursery and the children had the opportunity to hand her some flowers and she even spent some time talking to the children individually. The children made it onto the local and national news and in the newspaper.

 

Music Pete

Unfortunately Pete our music teacher has relocated to Norfolk and can no longer teach our children on a Friday. Pete has working with Little Angels for over 10 years and it is a great shame. We are however in the process of auditioning other music companies for Friday. We will keep you updated.
