Kiddi Caru Walnut Tree, Milton Keynes re-opens after fire

Kiddi Caru - 15th September 2022

We are delighted to announce that Kiddi Caru Walnut Tree Day Nursery and Preschool re-opened on 5th September 2022 following July’s devastating fire.

Four cabins, situated on the old site, will serve as a new home for the children and staff whilst the main Walnut Tree nursery is being rebuilt.

The nursery team have worked hard to create amazing nurturing environments where the children can learn, thrive and have fun, fitting them out with new furniture and plenty of learning resources.

The fire broke out on a nearby housing estate on 19th July 2022. The dry conditions, greatly exacerbated by the heatwave, meant that the fire quickly spread to our Walnut Tree nursery.

With help from the local community, temporary arrangements were made for the children during the summer. Children under the age of 2 and a half moved into a space at Wavedon Pavilion with their siblings, whilst the older children were based out of our Milton Keynes Village Nursery.

Louise Higgins, Regional Support Manager comment: “I would like to give my utmost thanks to my fantastic team for their continued hand work and everybody who was involved in getting the nursery operational. Being close to the original site, the team and children can see our nursery being rebuilt day by day which is very exciting.”
