Most schools and nurseries closed on March 20 to help slow the spread of Covid-19 but FountNursery on Westgate Street will continue providing key workers childcare for children aged six months to 11 years old to ensure parents can carry out jobs vital to public health and safety.

Victoria Gottshalk from the nurseries parent company FountLondon said: “At such an uncertain time, it’s paramount those who are still required to work have as little stress as possible and we want to help out wherever we can.

Those parents are keeping the country going and need all the support they can get.”
