New Beau Sejour creche system kicks in

BEAU Sejour creche’s new booking system worked well on its first day, despite the facility being quieter than usual, a member of a working party has said.

But the Culture and Leisure Department has not released any figures about how many people are using it.

The new system means that parents have to book a month in advance to use the creche. Prices have also risen.

The changes were brought about after the department announced that it was looking to close the operation because it was running at a loss. Louise Smith is one of the mums who has been working with the department to try to save the creche.

She was pleased with how the first day of the new system had gone.

Without figures, the rest is flimflam!

I used to use the creche for one off gym visits or swim sessions for myself, meaning if I had an afternoon or morning free for an hour, I'd pop to the gym whilst my son went to the creche for an hour. I was able to book the day before. I cannot work out what I'll be doing in a months time, so now I lose out on gym and swim visits, and they lose out on money!

They seem to have picked the most akward way to run the creche - booking a month in advance. The cynic in me might think that the powers that be do not want it to work - but do not want to be seen to let it fail themselves.
