We are celebrating 40 years of childcare
We have been selected to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund. It means that we will get a contribution towards our current fundraising project :-
Our existing furniture has been in use for well over 10 years and, although it is functional, it looks very outdated. We have identified the items that we need to replace at Nursery and have researched the items that we would like to replace them with. The new furniture will be bright and modern and will bring a fresh feel to our Nursery.
But we need your help. The more support we get, the more funding we could receive. So if you're a Co-op member, log into your Co-op Membership account and choose us. If you're not a member, please join and support us!
