Parents of children who attend Hatfield’s Explorers Day Nursery have expressed their disappointment after the nursery revealed it would be closing.

Parents received an email this morning with the news of the closure that will have effect at the end of March.

YMCA chief executive Guy Foxell said: “YMCA has regretfully taken the decision to close its Explorers Day Nursery in Hatfield as we have not been able to attract enough customers to bring their children to us.

“We recognise the impact that this will have on families and have given 50% more notice than we are obliged to, in the hope that this will give longer to plan the transition into other early years settings at the start of the new term and avoid disruption to children’s learning.”
