To enable additional facilities at a new day nursery in Ashbourne to expand the capacity of places on offer by bringing into productive use the whole of the ground floor facility. The project is to fully equip extra space in the building to cater for 24 children, create an outdoor play area and a new baby room facility as well as a commercial kitchen. The project will create a new rural service offer to enable parents to return to work.
If funding was not available the project would be delayed and the business would operate with limited equipment and would be unable to offer the extra capacity.
