Local MP Amber Rudd recently visited West St. Leonards Early Years Centre.
Kathryn Dixson, Nursery Manager at West St. Leonards Early Years Centre, showed Amber around the centre and introduced Amber to staff and children. Amber also met with parents that came to collect their children, who shared their concerns following the future and planned closure of the centre.
Amber commented, “I was delighted to meet with Kathryn at West St. Leonards Early Years Centre. It is clear the centre provides a fantastic entry point for children to West St. Leonards Academy. I was sorry to hear that the centre will need to vacate their current premises by the end of the year and I sympathise with the staff and parents of children who attend the centre. I hope the centre can relocate to new premises that are within walking distance because these facilities are invaluable to families that need them.”
