Leahurst Road Pre-school launches Crowdfunder page as it faces imminent closure

The well-established and highly reputable pre-school, which has been serving generations of families in West Bridgford, Gamston and Edwalton for over 50 years, will be forced to close unless vital financial support can be secured.

The preschool said:

‘You may already be aware of the urgent situation the pre-school is in.

‘A continued shortfall in government funding, alongside year-on-year increase in cost of living and overhead costs has caused thousands of similar childcare settings across the country to close.

‘Leahurst Road pre-school will also no longer be able to operate in its current position.’

Mariam Aslanfard, the pre-school manager said:

“The pre-school is a not-for-profit charity, run by a committee of parents, has always championed providing tailored, inclusive, and affordable childcare for the community.

“We take pride in the care we provide for our children, and we have always put our children at the heart of everything we do.

“We are devasted to find ourselves in a position where we can no longer keep our doors open without financial support.” 


This is the pre-school’s final appeal to anyone who can help, to support them in raising the much-needed financial support required, to remain open. 


‘We are appealing to any local businesses who may be able to help us. If you can, please get in touch. This is our last chance to raise funds otherwise our pre-school will close at the end of July.’
