Cliffe Childcare Centre to Close

I heard from many sources yesterday that Cliffe Childcare Centre is to close. This is sad news. Sabrina and her team deliver a great service (my kids certainly loved being there), and I hope something can be resolved and this great service can be maintained for the many families that rely on this centre heavily.

Why are they closing, are any details available ?

I believe there are issues with the building landlord, coupled with extortionate business rates. More financial pressure on an essential local business by the sounds of it.

Maybe they could re-form as a charity / not for profit (I doubt that profits were significant in any case). Then they would not have to pay business rates.

Thats terrible news. Both my children went there and i was highly impressed with the staff and their childcare abilities. My children absolutely loved it there. Lets hope they manage to find a solution or maybe are able to relocate.

Yes it is closing. Really really sad news. Our boy goes there, and has loved every minute of it. Sabrina and the team are all fantastic. I feel very sad, as I'm sure do many others. Id there is any way we can help I'd love to know

Ours had fantastic time there - is there no way anyone in Lewes can help Sabrina? Come on you greedy landlords/rate collectors...

She’s going to have to get there early and park on the outskirts
And still pee off the local residents
There’s no cheap... more
