Save our nursery

Submitted by admin on Sat, 04/17/2010 - 08:25

Aston Nursery is under threat once again. Members will remember that the nursery moved onto the Matthew Boulton site three years ago. Matthew Boulton are now ending their nursery provision for students. As a result, Aston is reviewing our own nursery provision.

UCU believes that campus nurseries are an essential service for students and staff and we are working with other campus unions and nursery staff to save the nursery.

To organise this campaign, we will be asking UCU members to support us in the coming weeks. First of all, we would like you to send us messages of support and experiences of using campus nurseries that we can use in our discussions with management.

Please let us know:

  • Why you think it is important for universities to offer nursery provision?
  • Your own experience of using campus nurseries.
  • What the impact of losing our nursery provision might be for students and staff?

Comments will be anonymised by the committee before being published here. They may also be used in future campaigning and lobbying material.
