"Thanks to the knowledge and speed of response from Juniper Education, together we have succeeded in securing additional nursery funding for the shortfall in occupancy due to COVID-19. With the unexpected expenses, staffing ratios to pupil numbers, I didn’t know how we were going to manage. With your expert financial support you helped us through which has been a difficult time. On behalf of John Ray Infant School, thank you, this makes a real difference to our nursery and school."
