Nursery dreams have come true for a two-year-old girl with cerebral palsy.
Neave Evans has started at the White Ash specialist school nursery in Oswaldtwistle for the first time and had to have her uniform specially made because of her small size.
The tot, from Great Harwood, was diagnosed with four-limb cerebral palsy at birth and is unable to walk, crawl or stand.
Her proud father Jan Evans, of South View, Great Harwood, said their family are delighted to see her start nursery following six months of assessments.
He said: “It's brilliant. She's gone into an environment with one-to-one care and people who will give her the best opportunities to develop.
“We know of some families who have kids who go there and it came highly recommended to us. “We went to have a look round as as soon as we went in we knew it was the right place. The staff there are lovely and the environment and facilities are fantastic.
“Her uniform finally arrived last Friday and she looks great in it.”
Neave started the nursery last week and has started learning about literacy and numeracy and taking parts in arts and crafts.
Jan said she will visit the nursery on Mondays and Tuesdays and continue to visit The Legacy Rainbow House for treatment.
He said: “This is a place for the long term and she can get totally familiar and immerse herself in there. She's going to come on leaps and bounds.
“We have had to move her tea time forward because she's so tired.
“She's gone from having about three hours sleep to a full 12 hours which is
a massive game-changer for all of us.”
