Prof Sir Mene Pangalos, executive vice president for BioPharmaceuticals R&D at AstraZeneca, cut the ribbon to officially open Shelford Day Nursery in Great Shelford.

He said: “Giving children the opportunity to learn through practical play, to experiment and to be creative is wonderful, and I hope the nursery will inspire many children to discover a lifelong passion for STEM subjects and their wider education.”

The nursery offers a science, technology, engineering and mathematics curriculum in a specially-designed building offering interactive indoor and outdoor learning spaces. The nursery, which is in a former bank building in High Green, will eventually cater for up to 59 children from babies to toddlers and pre-school children.
