Nursery reopens with fewer children
LITTLE TREASURES DAY NURSERY reopened yesterday as promised, but only a handful of children were in attendance.
The MIDWEEK NATION was reliably informed that only five children turned up out of the 80 or so said to be on the day-care centre’s roll last week. It caters to children between six weeks and four years old.
Last Friday Little Treasures, which has been in operation for 13 years, fired seven of its staff and closed its doors on Monday, saying it was going through a “restructuring process”.
The Child Care Board, which grants day nurseries the licence to operate, said on Monday it was satisfied that Little Treasures had dealt with its staffing issues and it would reopen yesterday.
However, when a NATION team visited the area in the afternoon, all was quiet within the nursery and only two children were spotted being collected by their parents during an hour-long vigil. (MB)
