IT WILL be children, children everywhere now a new extension has been added to the Hunnitots nursery at Ipswich Hospital.
A £250,000 grant to the NHS Trust means that the on-site nursery can now almost double their intake of children, enabling more parents to go back to work.
With the new extension up to 118 children can be registered, where before only 60 could be cared for.
An exhibition of the children's artwork depicting all the stages of the building work is on show in the extension.

Hunnitots has now been open for 11 years and also acts as a holiday club for children of staff.
It was one of the first of its kind to be developed by the NHS and has won national acclaim as an example of helping parents to balance their career with their family.
When it became clear that demand for day care places could not be met within the existing building the Trust put in a bid for money to create the extension.
