FORGET take your children to work day - sons and daughters took their dads to nursery at a Fenland school.
Youngsters at Emneth Nursery School showed their dads a thing or two about what they do as 14 fathers turned up to take part in school.
The event was pioneered by the Government three years ago in a bid to get more men interested in childcare, but proved so popular in Emneth that the school now holds a dad's day each month.
Marsha Jones, head of community at the school, said: "The pride we see in their faces is great. The idea is that they can show their dad where they spend their time.

"Although we are getting more dads and granddads coming, it is more the women who do the too-ing and fro-ing. It is just so important that the child understands that they [fathers] are interested in them."
Stephan Wedge was one of the dads who took a day off work to accompany his four-year-old daughter Abbie.

He said: "I get to do things with Abbie on her own. She is showing off and has pride in what she does."
Abbie said: "I've been playing with my dad. He's been rolling me on the big ball. I also played on the computer and in the moon sand.
