Thanks to a grant of £20,000 from the Council Wyborne Primary School, New Eltham, has been able to remodel part of its school to provide additional nursery places for two to four year olds.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Danny Thorpe, visited the school on Thursday 27 September to help cut the ribbon. He said: "It was fantastic to open Wyborne Primary School’s new nursery building and have lunch with the pupils. By increasing the number of nursery places now more children will benefit from the school's educational opportunities and working parents from 30 hours free childcare."

James Searjeant, Headteacher of Wyborne Primary School said: "We have been able to expand our nursery provision to accommodate more full time places. Our children can now eat their lunch in a comfortable, quiet and age appropriate dining space, which was only made possible with the 2018 Early Years Capital Fund Grant awarded to Wyborne Primary School by the Council."
