Privatise Beau Sejour creche call from parenting group founder
Saturday 4th May 2013, 11:30AM BST.
GUERNSEY MUMS has called for Culture and Leisure to consider letting private enterprise take over the Beau Sejour creche.
One of the founders of the parenting group, Milly Dudley-Owen (pictured), said members were very concerned at the possibility the creche could close.
She said it could have an impact on the other services that the centre provides and she has asked the department to think in a more ‘radical way’.
‘There could be consequences of closing the creche in terms of membership and use of the centre. While the creche might not be deemed to be vital, the financial effects could be quite serious. Parents who have got one or two children can go along there and use the creche, they use the cafe, they talk to friends. The department could potentially miss out on four streams of income.’
