SAVE OUR LOCAL AUTHORITY DAY NURSERIES

We the undersigned note that: 

  •  Tower Hamlets Council is undertaking a public consultation on whether to close, on a phased basis, the three remaining Local Authority Day Nurseries (LADNs) - John Smiths, Mary Sambrook and Overland Nurseries, including the specialist deaf unit.
  • Despite a large waiting list, for months council managers have blocked new admissions and have been running down the nurseries by stealth resulting in inflated running costs. They are now trying to use this to justify closure.

 
We oppose closure of the LADNs and call on the Mayor and Tower Hamlets Council to keep this valuable and in-demand community resource open and under council control. We call on the council to undertake a comprehensive review on how the LADNs are being managed and to develop a plan to ensure their viability.
