Save Jungle Cats Nursery
On the 7th January South Essex College in Southend on Sea made a proposed decision to close the Jungle Cats Nursery that is located within the college. The reasoning for this is to create more classroom space for the students at the college and university. The size of the nursery is not massive, but big enough for the 70 children that the nursery care for, the college will only be gaining a very small amount of space to create maybe two classrooms at most.
The staff that work at the nursery are a wonderful and dedicated bunch of ladies and this close has come as absolutely devastating news to them. There is a consultation period that finishes on the 8th of February. During this time the staff and the parents of the children that attend the nursery are given the opportunity to give their reasons as to why the nursery should stay open.
This closure will mean loss of jobs, the loss of an offstead outstanding nursery, distruption to the children, the parents will have to find alternative care for their children and most of all it is a terrible descision by the college.
Please take the time to sign this petition as we are trying to get as many signatures on here by the time the consultation period is over so that we can show the college how much of a big mistake they are making.
