Nursery returns from the ashes to reopen in Werrington


Back in September a fault with a fridge caused it to burst into flames while several children were still inside the nursery in Skaters Way in Werrington.

No-one was hurt but the resulting blaze ravaged the building - meaning 35 children were left without a nursery.

Owner Kim Mitchell, who also owns Kim's Childminding on Hicks Lane, said: "It was gutted - when I saw it the next day I was very tearful. 

"But William Law School helped us out a lot by letting us stay there, Ofsted have been helpful, and a lot of parents from the area donated items to us, which was lovely.

"We were completely closed for three weeks before we moved to William Law and then work started for four months. There was about £70,000 of building damage, and £50,000 of items lost.

"The refurbishment was finished last month - only seven children left in that period which wasn't too bad considering, and we did actually gain children who attend William Law.

The nursery has spaces for children from babies up to 11-year-olds, and there is also a holiday club. Funding is available for some spaces.
