Plans have been submitted for a new nursery, with capacity for 170 children and 33 staff, at the former St Pius Primary School site in Dundee.
The plans proposed are for a single storey nursery that will accommodate 3-5-year-olds and also hold spaces for 2-year-olds. It is set to have CCTV and lockable barriers to the main car park, with overnight lighting and additional planting surrounding the area to help prevent intruders.
Speaking to the Evening Telegraph, Councillor Lynne Short discussed the need for additional resources for early years education in the area, to support the provision of free hours.
“It is essential we deliver nursery buildings in Dundee which will create capacity for more of our children in a bright, modern, accessible learning environment” she said.
“The expansion of nursery hours will also have an impact on the economy of the city, allowing parents to attend training courses or take on jobs that they would not have been able to in the past due to time or cost issues.”
