On Friday 3rd July Alan officially opened Melton Crèche Services’s new premises in North Street, Melton (behind the Premier Inn hotel).
The crèche’s original mission was to provide childcare for the children of young mothers working in the care system, allowing them to return to work and providing greater continuity of care for the older people they look after. The crèche is now expanding commercially to open to other children from the area, who are set to benefit from the government roll-out of 30 hours free childcare a week.
Alan said: ‘I was very impressed by the facilities and staff here. Their original focus on providing for the children of carers is a vital lifeline allowing people to get back into work and provide continuity of care themselves. I am sure the crèche will continue to thrive now that they are expanding still futher.’
