THE nursery where a 10-month-old baby girl choked to death held an open day to help reassure parents ahead

of its reopening on Monday.

Mums and dads were invited to the open day in Cambourne to ensure their children had a smooth return as the nursery reopened after a three-week police investigation.

The Just Learning Nursery had been closed following the death of Georgia Hollick, who choked on a piece of apple at the nursery on Wednesday, April 19. The nursery remained closed as police carried out an investigation, but last week Cambridgeshire Police concluded they would not be taking any action.

Superintendent John Raine, who led the police investigation said: "I am satisfied that there are no grounds for any criminal prosecutions in relation to Georgia's death.

"I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere condolences to the Hollick family on the tragic death of their daughter."

Following the police announcement, the nursery held an afternoon for parents to meet nursery staff on a one-to-one basis.

A Just Learning spokesman told The Hunts Post: "The open day was an informal occasion to allow parents and staff to meet and to ensure that everything possible is done to help the children have a smooth return to the nursery."

Jonathan Bell, operations director at Just Learning, added: "Georgia Hollick will never be forgotten by anyone who works at the nursery. We are grateful to the police for their rigorous work. In the next few weeks we will decide on how to best remember Georgia, taking proper account of her parents' wishes."

Independent investigations into the incident by both Ofsted and South Cambridgeshire District Council's environmental health services are continuing.
