Getting Ready For Nursery School

Do you have a child starting Nursery in September?

Wandsworth Children’s Centres are running a programme, especially for children who haven’t been to nursery before.

Children will have opportunities to play with quality resources, make friends, share a healthy snack, develop their independence, and get used to a simple routine alongside their parent/carer.

Including visits from a Speech & Language therapist & an Educational Psychologist

Starting from week beginning 19th April for 12 weeks

Webinars on how you can help support your child to be ready, with a focus on their communication and language, routine, toilet training, boundaries and behaviour.

As parents, you are your child’s first and most important educator. Playing, reading, and talking to your child will greatly increase your child’s language skills and how well they do at school.

Look out for more details on www.facebook.com/RoehamptonChildrensCentres and the Family Information Service Children’s Centre page.

Please support the People’s Plan for the Alton Estate

Over the last year, the People’s Plan for the Alton Estate was co-designed with estate residents and stakeholders, supported by planning experts at University College London and Alton Action volunteers (the majority of whom are also local residents). The plan is based on the principles of sustainable development and community participation.

Our survey (UCL/Alton Action 2021) showed that residents do want a regeneration of the area and that their priorities are:

  • Modernisation of homes affected by leaks, damp, mould, lack of ventilation and poor heating/insulation
  • Refurbishment of facades and entrances
  • Protection and better use of green spaces
  • Building of more Council homes, especially family-sizes ones
  • Making buildings more secure and fire-safe 

The People’s Plan was therefore created around these priorities. It is fully costed and financially viable. You can see full details of the Plan here: https://www.altonaction.org/resources

We believe that the People’s Plan is better for the people who already live on the Alton. And local residents agree. When asked what type of regeneration they would prefer, 64% of respondents preferred refurbishment of the existing buildings to the mass demolition in the Council Plan (UCL/Alton Action survey, 2021).

If you also prefer the People’s Plan, please sign our petition:

“We call on Wandsworth Council to adopt the proposals within the People’s Plan and use them as the basis for a revised plan to improve the Alton Estate”

You can sign the petition online here: https://www.altonaction.org/petition
