Huge regret and great sadness—Pevensey & Westham Pre-school will close permanently on the 18th December 2018

It is with huge regret and great sadness that I have to tell you that Pevensey & Westham Pre-school will close permanently on the 18th December 2018. This decision has not been taken lightly as we are hugely aware of the impact it has on the children and the staff. There are a number of factors which are causing the pre-school to close, the main ones being the cost the village hall are charging us in rent, and the lack of funding we receive from the government.

This has been, without a doubt, the toughest and most difficult business decision I have ever had to make….the reason being that children, families and the team all lose out….people are affected by this and that makes it really distressing for me as the decision maker. Unfortunately though, this is a problem that I have tried to solve but the challenges I am faced with are out of my control.

We are working closely with the affected families to ensure their children have as smooth a transition as possible.
