Mum's dream return
by David Simister

A MUM is reviving the nursery she was the first child to attend 30 years ago.

Lynsey Blane, who went to Downholland Haskayne Primary School's nursery in 1981, found the nursery closed and decided to open her own nursery on the site.

“The school needed a nursery and I was looking to get back into work now that my son, Finley, is three years old,” she said.

“I have a lot of experience running nurseries for other people, and the opportunity arose to do it for myself this time. I am really looking forward to it. My son will be the first child in my nursery. It’s like history repeating itself.”

Lynsey's nursery, Little Learners, will cater for pre-school children, and be open every morning Monday to Friday, term-time, from 9am until 1pm. She added that government funding is available for all children aged 3 and over to receive 15 hours per week Nursery Education for 38 weeks a year.

The nursery will open for the first time on April 26, just after the Easter break.
