LABOUR/Co-op MP David Drew has opened Oxford, Swindon & Gloucester Society's new £ 900,000 purpose -built childcare nursery at Cainscross near Stroud.
The facility, part of OSG's imagine childcare business and the society's fifth nursery in all, can accommodate 61 children aged from three months to five years old and offers a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment for all children.
The new nursery has created 20 jobs and is open from 7.30am to 6pm weekdays (also offering weekday out of school care) and costs will always be set at affordable levels.
At each imagine nursery, parents and carers are able to join a consultative group and have a direct say in the running of the nursery their child attends.
