I will be supporting a parent led initiative to set up an Out of School Club for Tarves. The problems of childcare have got worse in the area with fewer people doing childminding. For working parents, this childcare is essential and they see such a club as a way of providing quality time for their children in a supportive learning environment.
Support will be needed from those parents who are interested in this initiative, by coming to the public meeting on Thursday 30th April 2015 and responding to the survey. In order to get the provision there has to be committment from parents to make it work.
Please come to hear more on Thursday. A venue is being arranged but a senior member of Aberdeenshire Council staff will be present to help parents understand what is involved and what can be done to get the alternative provision.
