It is with great sadness that due to diminishing numbers of children this year and ever increasing costs, we have had to make the very difficult decision to close all three of our Sparrows nursery settings.
Following the recent Government direction regarding Covid19 all three settings are currently closed but will open if the current restrictions are lifted, however the Sparrows settings will formally close for good as follows:
All Saints closed on 3rd April 2020
St George’s will officially close on 17th July 2020
St Mary’s will officially close on 23rd July 2020
For child places from September please visit the relevant Local Authority’s websites:
This decision has not been taken lightly and reflects a national trend of fewer children attending pre-school settings.
As I am sure you will understand this is very hard for all our staff who have dedicated themselves to the education and care of your children here, however we would like to thank all our valued parents and carers and their fantastic children for their support and loyalty over the past years.
We would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all well and hope you and your families stay safe.
Please note that the staff at St George’s are hoping to open a new setting from September based at St George’s – please see attached letter for contact details for further information.
