Parents fight to save Pre School

Parents in North London are ralling round to try to save thier children's pre school, after being informed it will close down this summer.

The Bell Lane nursery in Enfield has been funded by the government until now.

Parents say, with it's closure, they are stuck with no option, especailly as all nearby infant schools have already allocated all places.

Enfield Council told London Live: 

“The decision to close Bell Lane Preschool was taken by Carterhatch Infant School which runs the provision. Every child at the preschool is fully funded by the government.
“We appreciate that this has caused considerable distress amongst parents and we are currently seeking to identify alternative provision nearby for every child currently attending the preschool.
“Enfield Council is extending the deadline for parents to who missed the original deadline so they can applying for preschool places elsewhere in the borough. We are also opening a specialist preschool for children with special educational needs on the site and will be writing to all parents affected by this closure.”

Eleanor Cunningham has this report.
