Last Chance to Save Our Pre-School!

Unfortunately this project was not successful.

Our local community based pre-school is in danger of closing. We desperately need help to raise funds to secure our future.

by Leahurst Road Pre-School in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom

Leahurst Road Pre-School is a small charity pre-school led by a committee of parents, who have been very proud and privileged to serve the local community for over 50 years.  We have been integral in offering affordable, flexible childcare firmly believing that every child has the right to have the very best start in life.  The pre-school is renowned for its fully inclusive ethos and ability to offer those children with additional needs the care and support they are entitled to and ensure that every child that passes through the door grows with confidence and feels happy and secure, ready for their next steps.

Sadly, like many other similar settings, the pre-school faces the prospect of imminent closure at the end of this term if significant funds are not raised.  The pre-school is devastated at the prospect of not being able to provide this traditional committee led pre-school into the future.

The financial climate over the past few years has caused immense challenges for the pre-school.  The continual increases in overhead costs, such as the minimum wage, combined with a real term cut to income from government funded hours has meant the pre-school has been in a loss-making situation for some time now. Coupled with the reduction in numbers of children attending the setting primarily due to low birth rates, the pre-school can no longer guarantee its long-term sustainability going forward.

If you can help, we would be hugely grateful.  We are looking to raise £20,000 to give us some stability.  This is our last chance, please help us.
