Within the basement of an outdated church constructing, not removed from Kingsland Highway within the buzzing east London hipster hang-out of Dalston, Maudette Uzoh is struggling to maintain her nursery enterprise alive within the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Superb Days Nursery opened 4 years in the past at a time when the realm was booming. The ready checklist was full, with mother and father from various backgrounds, together with many who labored within the arts and inventive industries, all in search of childcare for his or her infants and toddlers so they might get again to the workplace.
As we speak nonetheless, the nursery has simply three kids to take care of. The remaining are at dwelling with their households and Uzoh is making an attempt to be optimistic, hoping in opposition to hope that enterprise will decide up and extra mother and father will enroll later this 12 months.

I do empathise with how mother and father are feeling. I need to be actually optimistic and say we’ll survive. It needs to be OK, so long as the an infection charges maintain dropping.”
Whereas many extra households are more likely to lose jobs and due to this fact not be able to pay for childcare, Uzoh is anxious that even for individuals who maintain their jobs, the pandemic might have triggered a shift in working tradition.
“We’re reliant on mother and father going to work, with us taking care of their children. It may wipe out the childcare business.”
Uzoh is making an attempt to remain optimistic, however she’s anxious about having to lose workers, including: “I’m optimistic that issues will decide up in September, and by October I’m hoping to have 60% capability, however the cashflow component is difficult. We’ve obtained a lot of viewings arising. I’ll know by mid-August who I’m going to have the ability to carry on and who I’m going to need to let go.”
