Developing more Community Nurseries in Lewisham
Affordable childcare is one of the biggest barriers for people returning to work.
Lewisham Homes and Lewisham council’s employment support service would like to bring together key stakeholders to help develop a new community nursery in Lewisham.
Peabody have been working with the New Economics Foundation to develop a community nursery in Deptford, and have offered to support us to develop more in Lewisham.
We need to consider:
– Training (childcare qualifications)
– Space to pilot the scheme
– Potential first beneficiaries (who have shown an interest in providing childcare provision)
Lewisham Homes has identified possible funding, but want to ensure they have all the right partners on board before we take the next steps.
Please let Alys (Alys.Exley-Smith@lewishamhomes.org.uk) know by 6 November if you’d be interested in attending a meeting to discuss this in more detail
