The former premises of Boston Rugby Club has been transformed into a children’s nursery after a 4 month refurbishment.
Tracy Bridger and Lenny Tyler took over the premises back in May and have overseen an extensive revamp, transforming the setting into Great Fen Day Nursery which officially opened last Friday. The pair set up Eslaforde Nursery 8 years ago.
Senior nursery manager, Lorna Tyler, said: “Boston was chosen as the location to expand the Eslaforde Nursery Group due to the property’s extensive gardens, which provide a unique learning experience for the children.
“We could see the huge potential the club offered.
“It gave a great opportunity for us to focus on our passion for developing children’s learning and understanding through using the great outdoors.”
Lorna Tyler continued to say: “It was a huge project, we have totally refurbished the building to make it suitable for use as a children’s nursery.
“We cater for children from six-weeks-old until the children reach primary school age and we also offer a holiday club for primary aged children during school holidays.”
She added: “The setting is on the outskirts of Boston which lends itself to being very convenient for parents dropping off and collecting children without entering the busy town centre.
“We also have an allotment area so that the children can have the hands on experience of growing their own vegetables which can be used by our chef to make their meals.”
Staff at the setting are either fully qualified or undertaking apprenticeships, with all having undergone a DBS check.
