The owner Lynne Drydal is now considering legal action after she was forced to close the nursery.

Mark Burn, Drydal's solicitor stated that the false accusations resulted in a fall in numbers and inevitably the closure of the nursery.

"She could not just continue. Because, unfortunately, dare I saw, people have come to conclusions and for one reason and another now she was not able to reverse the trend."

The investigation was prompted after Ofsted claimed that it had received complaints in regards to the safeguarding of the children. 

The report also detailed that "prompt and appropriate action" had been taken to fix any problems.

Compensation claims for child care

Leaving your children in care is never an easy task, but unfortunately when they are away from home there is always the possibility that your child could be subjected to poor treatment and therefore develop a range of injuries as a result.

When you send your child to child care you expect them to receive the best possible treatment and if this doesn't happen then you could look to make a claim. Any situation where your child has suffered from negligence at the hand of a child care employee could lead to you making a claim to recoup any financial damages that you have sustained as a result.
