Charles Ellis, Deputy Chief Executive of 4Children, said:
With more and more strain being placed on RAF families in these times of national and international uncertainty, the Nursery at the RAF base will help support RAF families – as well as civilian ones – throughout these difficult times.
Through the expertise of 4Children and existing staff, we are confident that the children and families that attend our children’s centres in Linton on Ouse will receive a quality experience that supports their care, learning and development and we are delighted to be given the opportunity to build on the excellent work and provision of support that families throughout Linton have already received.”
Julie Williams, Head of Childcare Services for 4Children said:
We are delighted to be part of this new and promising partnership and we look forward to providing ongoing support to both RAF and civilian children and their families.
Families of RAF personnel face particular challenges which make it more important than ever that young people have positive support to realise their potential. 4Children is proud to play this crucial role in ensuring that young people within RAF families receive the first class services and support that their family’s dedication and sacrifice rightly deserves.”
