Private provider wanted to run new day nursery in Carlisle

Childcare providers are being invited to bid to set up and run a day nursery that will form part of a new £12.5m school and community campus in Carlisle.

Cumbria County Council is inviting expressions of interest from potential tenants who can provide high-quality childcare for the under fives at the new and expanded Pennine Way School and community centre campus in Harraby.

A planning application to transform the bulldozed site that was the former secondary school on Edgehill Road is due to be submitted by Cumbria County Council this month.

In the meantime the county council is starting its search to find a private provider that can run the day nursery. Potential tenants are also being encouraged to offer wraparound care for children up to the age of 11, which would see the operation run between 8am and 6pm. Expressions of interest must be submitted by 5pm on March 20.

Subject to planning permission, the new community campus in Harraby is set to be completed in late spring 2015.

The scheme – funded by £10.7 million from Cumbria County Council and £1.6m from Carlisle City Council – will, over time, almost double the number of places at Pennine Way Primary School.

It will also see the creation of a community centre including café, library link, meeting space, soft play, children’s centre resources and sports facilities.

How important are buses in this day and age anyway...?

If public transport is the future - why do councils insist on killing it off?

Very - for economy, environment and to prevent rural isolation.

They're not. Most people have cars.
