Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
What is the father's objection to him going to Nursery?
Is he intending to pay his mother?
He cannot close the place at the nursery - and the college will not pay his mother to care for the child.
As the father he has equal parental responsibility and the right to be consulted on schools etc - but he has no more power than your daughter does .
I suggest that she tells him that if he is not happy with the arrangements then he needs to finance alternative ones.
I shoudl also point out to you that in fact if he is an apprentice then he has an income and should be paying maintenance
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
