On Friday 14 June 2019, we invited our local MP, Jeremy Quin, to the nursery. Jeremy had a good look around and enjoyed chatting to the children and staff.
The Early Years Alliance (a membership group for early years providers) have been campaigning about ‘Fair Future Funding’ to raise awareness of government underfunding for nurseries and pre-schools.
As part of the campaign, Jacky spoke to Jeremy about how we manage our funding, and the impact that low levels of funding have on the nursery and our parents.
We’re really pleased that Jeremy chose to visit Horsham Montessori out of all the requests he received this week, and that he recognises the importance of highly qualified nursery teachers and the problems with the current funding situation.
