Roundhill Pre-school Closes After 48 Years

On Friday 1st July, the staff and children at Roundhill pre-school had a party to mark the end of an era, our picture shows Paul, the Children’s entertainer.
Roundhill pre-school has been running for 48 years and has been a well established pre-school with parents bringing their children here not just from Syston and Thurmaston but further other villages including Rothley due to its reputation and caring staff.
Jean Ford retired on that day too, but this wasn’t the reason for the closure of the pre-school, she has been told that the lease had come to an end and no agreement could be made between Leicestershire County Council and the Trust.
Jean and her team wanted to thank everyone who has used the pre-school over the years and wishes the children well in the future. All the team have found employment either in the trust or elsewhere.
