Pre-school children from a Stockton-on-Tees nursery school visited elderly residents at nearby Woodside Grange Care Home. Ten three and four-year-olds from The Montessori People Independent Nursery School in Thornaby presented the residents with self-portraits which the children painted at nursery based on photographs supplied by the care home. They also took part in arts and crafts and helped to serve the residents refreshments, including tasty cup-cakes made by the nursery’s in-house chef.
