Against the Amalgamation of Woodburn and Queen Street Nurseries
- United Kingdom
Woodburn Day Nursery is situated in Falkirk, approximately 2 miles from the Town Centre. The nursery is open Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 5.30pm 52 weeks per year, excluding public holidays and staff developments days.
The nursery is registered for 36 pre-school children and it is part of the Education Service. The nursery provides full and part-time places to children aged 2-5 years. A range of services are available including pre-school and extended day care provision. All staff employed are qualified in childcare and we have weekly input from a pre-school teacher to advise on aspects of the curriculum.
The nursery is situated in its own grounds and has safely enclosed outdoor play areas which have been professionally equipped with a range of fixtures to promote children's physical development.
We are a group of mothers opposing the amalgamation of Woodburn and Queen Street Nursery. We believe that this action will be detrimental to our community, When asked local residents refer to Woodburn as the Hub of the community. This proposal goes against all aspects of social inclusion, with little or no regard to the specific accessibility needs of the familys using the Nursery. This nursery has benefited in some cases, generations of families and wants to continue to do so. There is and will always be a public want and demand for this nursery.
The staff at Woodburn are exemplary and really go that extra mile for all children in their care. This move has been passed but with out the consideration or proper consultation of us as residents in the area. Please show your support in any way you can!!
We the undersigned call on Falkirk Council to reverse the decision of Amalgamation of Woodburn and queen Street and to keep Woodburn Nursery open!!
