Building work starts on new Norfolk nursery
Plans to create a new nursery in Norfolk have inched closer after building work began.
The new centre at Norwich Research Park is designed to provide childcare facilities for both the general public and those who work on the park.
It was funded through a government Early Years Capital Fund grant of just over £433,000 and funding from the John Innes Foundation.
Located in zone one of the park, it will create 92 full-day places for children aged up to five.
There will be creche facilities, including a large outside play area, and a possible holiday club for children up to 11 years old.
Dr Sally Ann Forsyth, chief executive of Norwich Research Park, said: “The nursery is a great addition to the park. It will contribute to the supportive environment on offer here for both organisations and their employees by providing easy access to childcare.”
It will be operated by Chestnut Nursery School, and is due to open its doors in early 2018.
