Due to some of the parents feeling they do not have to pay their fees, the Carousel Pre School Nursery at The Dome in Walcot may have to close. It is a ridiculous situation that the young children, including mine, who attend and enjoy playing with friends could be the ones to suffer and miss out. Apparently in the past when they have chased parents for outstanding funds, the parents just withdrew their children and went elsewhere (to no doubt do the same thing). I do wonder if some who are not working, see it as a free child minding service while they have their free time to watch Jeremy Kyle. These parents will, no doubt, be the first to complain if the Pre-School closes but show little or no interest in doing anything to help or take part in parent / child activities.

Still, at least the elves have small hands and are good at the fiddly stuff. That’s why electronic toys usually come perfectly assembled, but if an ordinary person tries to take them apart all the bits spring out and vanish behind the sofa, in the pile of the carpet or among the seed in the budgie’s cage. − SantaRead Santa's blog »
Is it too early to say we are now play-off contenders? I’m not 100 per cent sure either way just yet because we all know an injury to any key players could cost us, but it is looking more and more positive as the weeks go on. − Dan The FanRead Dan The Fan's blog »
