Michael today hailed a local ‘success story’ as he joined local parents and children to open the Children’s Workshop’s new building in Sevenoaks.
The pre-school was formerly located at Sevenoaks Rugby Club but decided to move to new and improved premises last year. Michael assisted the school as it sought to secure planning permission for its new timber-clad building on the edge of Lady Boswell’s School. Permission was granted in October 2015 after special consideration was granted.
Michael spoke about the importance of pre-school education for working families in Sevenoaks before the building was formally opened by Mr Bloom from CBeebies with the firing of a confetti cannon.
Michael said: “I have been proud to support the Children’s Workshop’s move and I was delighted to attend today. The new building is a success story, demonstrating what can be achieved when local communities come together. It will provide a vital service that benefits both parents and children for many years to come.”
