Private operators for pre-school education revealed

Thu, 14 Jun 2012

The Department of Education and Children has announced which private operators will lease its pre-school facilities.

It follows a decision to stop providing free pre-school education from the end of the summer term.

Following a lengthy selection process 10 of the premises have now been filled - with the educational Manx charity Mooinjer Veggey securing over half.

No provider came forward for the premises at Jurby but the department says it is in discussions with a third party and is hopeful there will be provision in place by September.

The Department has also decided to readvertise Bride also because they say it is not economically viable unless it is offered on different terms.

The facilities will be leased out as follows:

Ashley Hill - Mooinjer Veggey

Auldyn -  Stepping Stones

Ballacottier - Mooinjer Veggey

Ballasalla - Mooinjer Veggey

Cronk-y-Berry - Sandcastles Kindergarten

Manor Park - Mooinjer Veggey

Peel Clothworkers - Busy Bears Nursery

St John’s - St John’s Pre-School Trust

Victoria Road - Nursery at Victoria Road School

Willaston - Mooinjer Veggey
