We are Opening Again!

We are delighted to annouce that we are able to welcome back our lovely children from Monday 7th September!

We are really looking forward to catching up with everyone again and seeing how much our children have grown!

All parents should have received a letter outlining the new routines that we will all have to stick to due to Covid-19. If you haven't please, don't hesitate to contact us as soon as possible.

To safeguard our children and staff we have implemented the following new guidelines:
  • Families will be issued with staggered times for collection and pick up. Social distancing is to be adhered to at all times
  • Families should limit drop off and pick up to 1 adult per family
  • Only children who are symptom free or have completed the required isolation period may attend the setting
  • Only parents who are symptom free and or have completed the required isolation periods will be able to drop off and collect their child.
  • On arrival at the preschool, it is reasonable to ask if parents, children or any member of the household have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 (high temperature, persistent cough). If the answer is yes, they should not be allowed to leave their child at the settings, The child cannot return until a negative test result has been confirmed and agreed return with the preschool or current isolation guidelines followed
  • Children will enter the setting and staff will take them to wash hands, thoroughly on arrival, when changing rooms inside/outside, before eating and after using the toilet.
  • Children will be encouraged to avoid touching their face, eyes, nose and mouth where possible
  • No toys, teddies, blankets (or similar) to be brought from home. Children's belongings are to be purely essential and minimal and to be brought in a plastic carrier bag so that it can be sanitised.
  • We will consider allowing parents to enter the preschool for the purpose of settling in sessions if not doing so would cause a child distress. All measures should be taken to minimise contact between parent and other children and staff members and the parent should wear a mask where possible.
  • any child who has been told to shield or who is clinically vulnerable or live in a household with someone who has been advised to shield or is clinically vulnerable should not attend
  • any child who has taken any form of paracetamol or ibuprofen will not be allowed to attend for 48 Hrs after symptoms have passed
  • any child who displays signs of a cold will not be allowed in preschool until 48 Hrs after symptoms have ended and a negative test result. Or will have to adhere to self-isolation guidelines
