This April, at least 8 community nurseries in Hackney were informed of immediate cuts ranging from £30,000 – £50,000 for each nursery. These cuts were implemented without consultation or a fair and open process. They mean a serious threat of nursery closures.
The Hackney Learning Trust and Hackney Council are denying that there is a programme of cuts to nursery provision.
We, the undersigned, call on the Hackney Learning Trust to :
- immediately reverse the decision to cut funding to nurseries’ commissioning grants
- have full consultation with community nurseries about funding and answer our questions on how money is being allocated
