Some of Liverpool’s childcare hubs, which are looking after the children of key workers, are to extend their opening hours from Monday 6 April. To stay responsive & meet the need of key workers, there are some changes from Monday 6 April. Some hubs are closing due to low numbers, but 9 hubs will now be open from 7am – 7pm. All hubs will open throughout the easter holidays (inc the bank holidays) subject to demand: https://liverpoolexpress.co.uk/further-changes-to-liverpool-childcare-hubs/
