Recent developments within the college have indicated that the future of the Full Day Care Provision based at Longford Street is under threat of closure.

We operate primarily for the children of parents who attend classes in the college. The setting is registered for children 2 yrs to under 5 years. Currently practically the children attending have E.A.L.( English as an Additional Language) and are from a diverse racial and cultural background and so of course the same goes for our parents and the children’ families. Our staff mirror the diversity of our local community and in total we have 15 different languages spoken between us.

Camden Early Years is keen to propose the WKC Full Day Care setting as an example of Good Practice and Excellence on a new Quality Provision Register due to be launched. As part of the college’s duty to promote Every Child Matters and Every Parent Matters outcomes, providing such high quality care for the children of students is contributing to enhancing the parent and child’s life opportunities and Lifelong Learning.

We the undersigned are petitioning the Governors and Principal of Westminster Kingsway College, to reconsider and reverse any decisions which threaten this essential provision.

The closure of the last onsite Ofsted registered provision will impact on the college links with the local community and the retention and enrolment of students.
