Parklands Maintained Nursery School notice of consultation 2022

Closed 16 Sep 2022

Opened 24 Aug 2022

Overview

West Northamptonshire Council along with the Governing Body of Parklands Maintained Nursery School are proposing to lower the nursery age range from 3 to 5 years to 2 to 5 years from 31st October 2022. 

As part of the statutory decision-making process for school organisational changes of this nature the Council is consulting on its proposal and seeking your views.

Why are we proposing the change?

The number of childcare places for 2-year-old children in the locality will reduce when the existing on-site Private, Voluntary and Independent (PVI) provider, Parklands Pre-school closes.

By lowering the admission age of Parklands Maintained Nursery School, the 2-year-old children within the community, particularly those that are the most vulnerable, will be able to access the funded place that they are entitled to.
