Enrollment in the suspended nursery for “the aptitude of senior executives”
Parents of children at a south Liverpool nursery are desperate for a childcare alternative after her registration was suspended for six weeks over unknown “concerns”.
Mossley Hill Childcare, on Mossley Hill Drive, Sefton Park, will remain closed until education regulator Ofsted is satisfied it can keep children safe.
The agency says it has received concerns about “the suitability of senior staff” and must “make sure children are safe.”

Parents were informed on Wednesday that the nursery would be closed with immediate effect.
The nature of the concerns and the people who raised them with Ofsted have not been disclosed.
When ECHO called the nursery to ask, an official declined to say what had happened and called the issue “a little concern”.
The nursery has not undergone a full Ofsted inspection since November 2018, when it was rated Good in all areas.
In this report, the inspectors concluded: “The staff are well supported by the manager and other senior members of the team.
“Effective supervision arrangements ensure that teaching is always strong throughout the nursery.”
When ECHO asked Ofsted what happened this week, a spokesperson said: “We have suspended the registration of the crèche due to concerns about the adequacy of senior staff and the capacity of the nursery to meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
“We are reviewing these concerns to make sure children are safe.”
