Ballogie Nursery received £500 from the Fountain Dental Practice in Banchory.
The donation will go towards developing outdoor learning within the nursery environment, with a focus on buying outdoor musical instruments, wet weather clothing for the children and indoor plant house so that seeds can be nurtured ready to be planted out and outdoor established plants.
Alan Bennett (pictured, centre), one of the partners within the practice, has a son in the nursery. The practice regularly sponsors charities following discussion with all the partners.
Headteacher Julie Hughson said: “As a nursery, we are extremely appreciative of this sponsorship and would like to thank Mr Bennett and his partners.”
