MP Eric Pickles played with Lego when he officially opened a nursery.
He made a tour of Little Acorns nursery at Woodlands School, Great Warley, on Monday before declaring it open.
The Brentwood and Ongar MP even sang songs with the youngsters.
Mr Pickles said: “I have had a great time playing Lego and singing songs with the children. This is a lovely nursery and I’ve always had a soft spot for Great Warley. What a lovely, friendly place to grow up and be educated in.”
Little Acorns was launched to meet the increasing demand from current Woodlands parents for childcare.
“We were thrilled that Eric Pickles could come and officially open the nursery,” a spokeswoman said.
