A Rhyl nursery has closed its doors suddenly after nearly 15 years.
Sam’s Learning Tree on Vale Road ceased trading at 6pm on Thursday evening, with the loss of around 25 jobs. In a message on the nursery’s Facebook page, owner Michelle Gowing told parents that they would need to find alternative childcare from next week.
This closure is completely out of my control and has nothing to do with the way my brilliant team of very caring and professional staff have looked after your children.
For those of you who know me well, the closure of this nursery is very upsetting and I will miss everyone.
Accounts will be reconcilled and statements issued for those due or in credit.
The nursery’s after school unit in Denbigh remains open but the company has ruled out offering childcare during the Easter holidays.
Denbighshire’s Family Information Service are offering help and advice to affected parents on making alternative arrangements. Two officers will be based at the Oakdale Centre on Ffordd Las on Tuesday from 8am.
Last month, First Minister Carwyn Jones visited the nursery on the eve of the Welsh Labour party’s spring conference in Llandudno.
