A leading childcare provider is investing £550,000 in a flagship nursery in north London to meet demand for quality, family-friendly nursery places.
The Co-operative Childcare will open the new site at Bounds Green Road, Bounds Green, in September. It is converting and upgrading a former school building for the 83-place nursery which will create up to ten new jobs and provide improved facilities.
The development will replace its current nursery just over a mile away at Palmers Green. Children and the existing 22 colleagues from there will move to the new premises.
Mike Abbott, Group General Manager at Co-operative Childcare said: “We are very excited about the new nursery which will be bigger and enable us to offer more facilities in bright and airy rooms. Conversion work is underway on the Victorian building to prepare for the opening in September.
“It will have a dedicated baby unit with its own safe rooftop garden and there will be a room specifically for children aged one to two years, who will have their own garden too. The rooms for two to three year-olds and for the pre-school children will both have access to a large outdoor learning area.
“In addition the new nursery will have a sensory room which will be available for all children to experience in small activity groups.
Mike added: “We were keen to offer the same high standard of childcare to local families in an improved setting and also remain convenient for our existing parents. There is demand for a caring and professionally delivered childcare service and we are already taking down names for the new nursery.”
Families can apply to register their children ahead of the opening by calling 0800 954 0669.
The Co-operative Childcare is part of The Midcounties Co-operative. It is a leading national ethical childcare provider and operates 49 nurseries and two after school clubs around the country.
It delivers early years care and learning in a safe and stimulating environment. The nurseries have strong connections to the local communities and all are encouraged to get involved with local groups.
