Save Kiddycare Nursery in Mount Pleasant Mail Centre from closure

We are asking Royal Mail in North London to reverse their plans to close down a nursery that looks after the children of posties.

We urge senior management at Mount Pleasant Mail Centre on Farringdon Road to reverse the planned closure of its Kiddycare Nurseries branch in March 2021.

Royal Mail intend to close down Kiddycare, which has looked after the children of posties for 22 years, despite long-term discussions with workers’ representatives over its future.

Currently, 23 children are signed on at the nursery, which has stayed open during the pandemic to look after the children of key workers.

Due to many workers self-isolating and working from home, the nursery numbers throughout 2020 were far lower than usual, but Kiddycare has kept their places open without charge, and are receiving a flurry of enquiries over children returning after lockdown ends.

Why is this important?

Without the nursery, many posties, especially women, would not be able to work. The nursery has been a vital support to many in its 22-year history, enabling local people to take jobs at Mount Pleasant. Protecting Kiddycare Nursery also protects jobs for local people.

How it will be delivered

We will collect petitions in person and online and deliver them to Royal Mail in early 2021.
