Guardian Care Homes opens a second children’s nursery

Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Guardian Care Homes, which owns 32 care homes in the UK, has opened a second children’s nursery near Durham. The Bowburn Guardian Angels Nursery offers care for children aged from just three months – complete with its own “sensory stimulation” room. The facility also offers after-school care and staff will collect children from schools within a five-mile radius. The company’s other nursery is Kinder Kare, in Market Drayton, Shropshire. Guardian managing director Gary Hartland said it seemed a natural extension for a care homes group to also run nurseries for children. “I think parents will be very impressed when they see the high standard and imaginative facilities on offer at Bowburn Guardian Angels Nursery and meet our highly experienced staff, who will offer a wide range of opportunities for the progression and development of the children in their care,” said Mr Hartland.
