The bespoke venue launched with great style thanks to guest appearances from Minnie and Mickey Mouse and a ‘Wixie hunt’ around Pocklington (Wixie is the Blue Sky mascot).

Children spotted Wixies in windows of local businesses who were supporting the nursery throughout the town.

The new nursery held a ‘rehome a teddy’ tombola and raised over £50 to help support YPC in Pocklington.

The children even enjoyed a surprise visit from Pocklington town crier Geoff Sheasby, who was a little shocked when Mickey stole his bell.

Jo Watson, area manager at the Blue Sky Day Nursery, said: “We now have an amazing, stimulating place for young children to develop both inside and out in the lovely freshly lawned garden area.

“The nursery combines a day nursery, pre-school and out of school club for children from Pocklington and the surrounding area.
