Alliance welcomes The Princess of Wales to outstanding Luton nursery

Raising awareness of the importance of early years, the Early Years Alliance welcomed The Princess of Wales to Foxcubs Nursery, a ‘outstanding’-rated setting run by the Alliance in Luton

The Princess of Wales was introduced to educators, children and parents at Foxcubs and spent time listening to their experiences of the early years as well as discussing the pivotal value of early education during the visit. 

Alliance chief executive, Neil Leitch, who also attended the visit, took the opportunity to thank The Princess for her ongoing work to highlight the importance of early education, and briefly discussed with her the Alliance’s #WeAreEducators campaign, a positive and empowering sector campaign which aims to recognise those working in the early years as educational professionals.

Commenting on the visit, Neil, said:  

“It was an absolute privilege to welcome The Princess of Wales to Foxcubs Nursery this morning. 

“We know that early education is a key focus for The Princess and the work of the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood has been pivotal in changing perceptions of early childhood and raising awareness of the critical importance of the early years. 

“Given that our current campaign, #WeAreEducators, is all about shining a light on our fantastic educational professionals, we are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to showcase the outstanding early years provision at FoxCubs to The Princess today.  

“We would like to express to The Princess our deep gratitude for her unwavering commitment to our sector, and we look forward to supporting the continued work of the Royal Foundation on this important issue.”
