Possibly.

The local authority are bombarding street advertising hoardings with 'free places for two to four year olds'. I think the rate paid by the LA to the nursery per child per hour for our area was £3.55, whereas the rate for a child attending full time at the nursery works out to £3.89.

Quick update.

The meeting went ahead on Wednesday evening. There were more representatives from the nursery/school/local authority than parents.

Apathy seems to rule doesn't it.

Concerns were raised and discussed, and more of the real back story came to light. I was told this morning that there will be a further meeting of the school and nursery governors today at which they will try and take on board some of those concerns to see if there is any leeway at all. The truth seems to be that no one has kept any eye on promoting the services offered, and trying to generate new ways of generating income streams, to the point where it is almost too late to stop the rot. And therein we have the difference between public and private bodies. A council employee doesn't really care about the profit or loss. An entrepreneur would focus only on that.

It is a shame.
