Important update on Eaton Mill nursery places

Wednesday 28 March 2018


Following a judgement of ‘inadequate’ by Ofsted, Milton Keynes Council had been making plans to stop funding places at the above nursery. The council has to do this as the funding we distribute is provided by government under strict conditions. This is never an easy, or indeed pleasant, thing for us to do.

The inspection of Eaton Mill Nursery took place on 20 December 2017 and the report was published on 3 February 2018. The council had planned to fund places until the end of March 2018 (8 weeks from the date of publication) to give parents and carers some time to work out what they wanted to do.

On Monday 27 March we were told that the nursery had been re-inspected and we are hopeful the outcome is positive. We have therefore taken the decision to minimise the impact on parents and children and to continue to provide funding to bridge the gap until the new Ofsted report is published.
