Save Ivanhoe Under Fives Preschool!!!!.  

Today the 22nd March 2018, the parents recieved a letter from the directors Mrs AM Blewitt and Mrs C Eyley,  stating that it will be closed on the 12th July 2018 due to government funding and operating costs. Sadly there has been no help or other ways sorted to save it.

Ivanhoe Under Fives of North Street, Ashby De La Zouch is based on the grounds of Ivanhoe College.  It is a very highly respected establishment that Ofsted deem outstanding.

This establiment is a much loved preschool and has helped so many children of all backgrounds in so many ways. For example my son suffers from a speech delay, they have done everything possible to help encourage and develop his speech with different techniques and i now see him flourish. All of the children there with their own individual needs have benefited themselves and their development has come on greatly. The staff here are fantastic and pride themselves in the amazing job they do for the children.

  • The community will be at a loss without this fantastic preschool. There are few preschools in Ashby, other than Private day nurseries which do not offer the quality education that this setting does for the specific age group it caters for.
  • The children who still have another year there before school and those due to start in September now have to find elsewhere in the reduced educational facilities of Ashby De La Zouch.
  • At least 6 fantastic members of staff will loose there employment 

I am deeply saddened that this is happening we need to save this amazing preschool.

Please sign and show how valued and vital this establishment is. It needs to stay open!  also please join our facebook  - Save Ivanhoe Under Fives https://m.facebook.com/groups/1888105404808913
