The YMCA are expanding the discount that they offer on their nursery fees for Public Sector employees commencing 1st April 2013. They are holding Public Sector open days in their nurseries during March so that staff can go along and see first hand the facilities they have available.
The YMCA has two OFSTED registered nurseries on the Island, one within the grounds of St. Marys Hospital in Newport, and another at Winchester House in Shanklin. Both nurseries cater for babies and children from 6 weeks up to 5 years, and are open 51 weeks of the year, from 07:30 – 18:00.
Both nurseries are situated in the heart of their communities, and offer plenty of indoor and outdoor space, with large playrooms and lovely secure gardens, which focus on providing a natural environment to explore, with trees, puddles and bugs.
You are invited to go along to one of their open days / evenings, to find out a little more – children are more than welcome too, as there will be fun activities for the children to enjoy while you get a chance to meet the Nursery Managers, the staff, and have a chat to a representative from FIZ (Family Information Zone).
