YOUNG children have become the first users of a new community centre in North Bersted.
The members of Dizzy Ducklings Pre-School have been making the most of their pristine surroundings at the Bersted Park Community Centre.
The pre-school opened last week and the children have already made themselves at home in the building amid the new housing on the site six development.
Pre-school owner Lizzy Austin said: “This is a big pre-school area and I’m really confident about my new venture.
“Ofsted has inspected the premises and is really happy with them. They are so suitable for me. They are very colourful and nice and brand new.
“There’s a lovely outdoor space as well, which is secure.”
She has 21 children on roll, with room for up to 34 each session on weekday mornings.
The centre also offers the chance for the children to enjoy areas for creativity, shopping and playing with cars.
“They are taking their first steps of learning,” said Lizzy. “It’s very musical and very physical. There’s a lot of things going on all the time.”
Lizzy ran baby and toddler gym classes for four years after she became a mother.
She opened Dizzy Ducklings on Mondays and Fridays at Willowhale Community Centre in January 2013 and the response led her to expand.
