Easton Community Nursery – by Raised in Bristol
We’re pleased to formally announce that from January 2018 Easton will have a brand new children’s nursery, to be based here at Easton Community Centre (in the Annex). ‘Raised in Easton’ will provide a huge benefit to our community in Easton, and will also have a positive impact on the wider city of Bristol too.
Raised in Easton is for children aged one to five (1-5) years old and will be open five days a week, from 8am until 6pm all the year round.
For more information and to register on the waiting list please go to www.raisedinbristol.org.uk
Did you know that the Annex at ECC was originally built as a nursery? Some of you may have sent your children there or may have even attended yourself! It’s fantastic news for the community that we can bring this much needed service back. We’re currently refurbishing the space and it will look fantastic as well as be a great place for our children to play, learn and get ready for school.
Whilst there are already other nurseries in Easton, we know that the increase in the allocation of ‘free’ nursery hours to working parents means that the waiting lists have grown. We’re also welcoming lots of new families to Easton and so the Raised in Easton is a much needed addition.
The organisation running the nursery, Raised in Bristol, is a values led, social enterprise business. ECC is very pleased to work in partnership with it. The wider community of Easton will also benefit because Raised in Bristol is going to donate a profit share to Easton Community Centre.
Two of the directors of Raised in Bristol were part of the Southville Centre team that reinvigorated the Centre by re-opening its children’s nursery. It achieved an Ofsted Outstanding judgment and still brings lots of positive changes to the local area in terms of additional community services as well as supporting families and their children to have a really positive start and to feel more connected to their community.
It’s Raised in Bristol’s ambition to work with other communities to achieve the same thing. Raised in Easton is the first of its kind and is already generating lots of interest in Bristol and beyond.
An Open day has now been arranged – come and meet the team behind Raised in Easton, find out about the nursery, register your child or enquire about working with us in the future.
The next open day is on Saturday 9th December 12 – 3pm. For any questions about the nursery please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
