Government day nurseries closing today
All government day nurseries will be closed from April 1.
Director of the Child Care Board Joan Crawford told Starcom Network this was in response to a lack of demand for the service in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Crawford reminded parents not to leave children unattended at this time and they would continue to “provide a place of safety for all children”.
Earlier this week, she announced staff reductions at the 15 day care centres. (SAT)
