East City News: Little Angels ready to take wing; SHARD END.

A PIONEERING scheme at a Birmingham school aimed at giving poor parents cheap child care has proved a hit, and is set to be extended.

Staff at Guardian Angels Catholic Primary School, in Shard End, found that parents in the area were struggling to pay huge childcare bills.

Teachers raised funds to create the Little Angels centre, which opened in September. It looks after 45 under-fours for as little as pounds 31 a week per child. There is now a long waiting list.

Head teacher Catherine Naughto said: "It is proving a big help to parents and we are going to make the room bigger and open it to up to 90 children in September.
