A REDDITCH nursery will mark its seventh birthday by spreading some smiles around the town.

Astwood Smiles Nursery will celebrate seven years of caring for little ones with 'Smile Day' on October 1.

To mark the day, the children will make and hand out 'Smile Day' cards around the local area, all in the hope of making someone smile.

It comes as the nursery has bounced back from the pandemic by upgrading facilities with the additions of a playhouse and a custom-built teepee to be used as a quiet reading area.

Olivia Waters, owner and managing director, said: “We’re thrilled to be celebrating our 7th birthday this year. Over the years we’ve experienced a number of emotions watching the children come to us as babies and seeing them grow, learn and develop right through to pre-school. We’re very lucky to have such an amazing team and we’re looking forward to the future.”
