Green Flag for Kelvin Park Early Years Centre

Last week, I met up with parents and children who are supporting efforts to save the Kelvin Park Early Years Centre from closure. During my visit,  I was impressed to find out that the Centre has been awarded a Green Flag and it is investing in the outdoor play facilities.

The parents shared their concerns about the impact of the proposed closure on their families. The uncertainty surrounding the proposed changes to Early Years in the Hillhead area is a serious worry. 

Understandably, they don't want to give up the high quality, purpose build facilities on offer at Kelvin Park Early Years Centre.  It is proposed to provide Early Years places at Oakgrove Primary School, Woodside Nursery, Belhaven Nursery, Cowcaddens Day Nursery, Novar Nursery, Cranstonhill Nursery and also via partnership nurseries in the locality.
The end of the Public Consultation period is 29 September 2014. I will be meeting with parents and other groups to hear views on the proposal over the next 2 months.
