Western Road school and YMCA

My children went to the YMCA nursery and thoroughly enjoyed it. Then they went on to Western Road. There, the head decided to end after-school care, and so children whose parents worked made do with having the kids go to YMCA instead - which was fine, loads to do , the arrangement worked. Now YMCA is closing, working mums and dads at Western Road will be left without an option.
I can understand the YMCA decision to leave premises which need a lot of capital to maintain, but I cannot understand why this would mean abandoning the town altogether. And shame on WR head Montebello, whose decision really is having an impact on working parents - because, you know, we can't all afford to have someone stay at home to be there for the kids every day.
If someone wants to set up a nursery + after school service, I feel there are many takers.

You're tilting at Jack and Jill from Clayton if you think anything will come of this from the Lewes Forum.

My partner and I raise our child on a pretty standard wage too. We could both get more by working further away than we do and longer but you make compromises don't you? More time with our child which is the important thing. Clapped out car, most things in the house second hand,.and cheap camping holidays being the compromise. Our child wants for nothing though and most of all has the parental attention and responsibility they should have. It's a decision every parent has to make about what is important.

I could take then in. I'm thinking of opening a nursery of silly walks. The parents would have to provide bowler hats for the children though as I'm on a budget.

Before anyone corrects me on my typo I have already corrected myself. I really don't think we want month pythons on here. Ooh or actually do we?? It could be a right old money spinner for Lewes. ROLL UP ROLL UP get your tickets for python month. People might think it's the name of a new band.

Same boat as us Bert
So who gave you the thumbs down ???
Consumeristic parents I guess that want it all.
Here's a little bit of advice for them, take it or leave it.
You can't save up your child's life and use it when it fits in with you.
My kids are now young adults and it seems like yesterday they were toddlers.
Thankfully we were there to enjoy the journey
