"I would like to thank all the council services involved as well as Bancon Construction Ltd for working together to complete this magnificent state-of-the-art extension. The council takes great pride in investing and upgrading its schools so that they can be enjoyed not just by the pupils, staff and parents but, in many cases, the community as well."

Aberdeenshire Council's Education and Children's Services Committee chair Cllr Gillian Owen added: "With the expansion of provision of nursery places at the forefront of the national political and news agenda currently, the official opening of the extension to Bervie Nursery could not be better timed. Learning and play are so important for children's development as our Play Strategy demonstrates so these new facilities will play such an important part in our children growing in the years ahead.

"One of the most pleasing aspects of my role as committee chair is witnessing the investment that has gone into our school estate to transform it into a modern environment where children and teachers alike can thrive."
