Hope Nursery School in Belfast to receive £20,000 funding.
Pre-school channel Nick Jr has revealed the winner of its Help Dora Help social responsibility campaign, with Belfast-based Hope Nursery School picking up the £20,000 funding.
Help Dora Help launched back in May, supported by The Prince's Foundation for Children and the Arts. The campaign encourages pre-schoolers to learn through exploration.
One in five UK nurseries/pre-schools registered for a free activity pack and were invited to apply for the grant, by explaining how the nursery would benefit and designing a Dora-themed backpack.
Five nurseries were selected as finalists by Nick Jr's judging panel, with the ultimate winner decide by public vote.
"We're delighted that Hope Nursery have been chosen to receive the Help Dora Help award fund, they are worthy winners," said Tina McCann, MD of Nickelodeon UK. "From the start of the campaign our aim was to encourage pre-schoolers to explore their worlds, so in addition to making a difference to Hope Nursery, we're also proud to have worked with so many nurseries and pre-schools across the UK to encourage a sense of adventure in pre-schoolers."
