Mull and Iona Community Trust plans new nursery

PLANS are afoot to build a community nursery near Salen on Mull.

Mull and Iona Community Trust (MICT) is applying to buy land in Glen Aros for a ‘purpose-built childcare facility with an outdoor ethos’.

MICT’s website explains: ‘We have been exploring the possibility of building and running a purpose-built nursery on the island for a couple of years now due to the growing need for flexible wrap-around childcare on Mull. By 2020, the Scottish Government is planning to expand the number of free early learning and childcare hours to 1,140 from 600. This increase will put a strain on the provision currently offered by Argyll and Bute Council and creates a demand for a new facility on the island.
