Streatley Hill Pre-school Group

Streatley Hill Pre-school needs to replace its existing building with a new building to ensure its long term survival, otherwise it will be forced to close. A bigger, better facility will also increase our capacity to deliver high quality pre-school education to all children aged 2-4 in the village.

Situation

The current building is rapidly deteriorating. A Full Structural Survey in 2003 stated that its estimated lifespan was 5 years. Its maintenance cost are high & it is difficult to heat. There is no separate rest, & nappy changing area. It is no longer fit to deliver the education our children deserve. If something irreparable happened to it tomorrow, we would be forced to close, with the loss of 6 jobs, & unable to offer affordable, local pre-school education. Despite this, it is oversubscribed.

Solution

The new building will have a long lifespan (in excess of 40 years) so that all future Streatley children can benefit from local, high quality pre-school education. Its increase in size will accommodate a separate rest, & nappy changing area. It will have natural light and ventilation, and improved energy efficiency. We will be able to increase our capacity from 14 to 20 children per pre-school session, meeting the demand from local parents to access affordable childcare, & keep 6 staff employed.
