COVID-19

 

In March 2020 the UK was hit be the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. As a result, we have had to change our ways of working in relation to parent partnerships. Currently parents are not allowed to enter of nurseries due to social distancing, however, please be assured that if your child needs you to enter the building for their emotional well-being this will be allowed for a short period of time. We want parents to continue to be involved in their child's learning and development, and to continue to share home learning experiences with your child's key worker to support assessments. Each setting will work differently in relation to parental engagement activities such as parents evening/consultation meetings. Please contact you child's setting should you need more information.

We have robust risk assessments in place for all settings and these are updated and reviewed regularly in line with current guidance from the government. Each setting has procedures in place with regards to cleaning the environment more frequently to ensure we remain COVID secure. These are available at each setting for your information and should of been emailed to all parents. Please contact the setting if you have not received this. 

We want to reassure parents that children's emotional health and well-being is our main priority. We have worked hard, during the period of lockdown and subsequent reopening to more children, to ensure that the nursery experience, for the children, is as it has always been. They are provided with comfort and physical contact when needed as social distancing with young children is impossible. 

Further Coronavirus information can be found via the NHS https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/and GOV.uk https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

We have specific information for parents on what to do should their child or they develop symptoms:
