Following the Prime Minister’s announcement, from Monday 1st June 2020 early years providers can re-open subject to the 5 key indicators being met; including a decreasing infection rate.
As this is conditional and not guaranteed, we have been asked to make plans for a gradual opening, starting with children who are 3 or 4 years old, initially and then all other age groups later.
To minimise risk of transmission, children will remain the same groups with the same key worker while they are at nursery. We will continue to adhere to the pre-arranged days as requested by parents. However, for the rest of the term parents will be asked to choose a morning or afternoon slot as we will not be providing full day-care until after the term ends.
Mornings sessions will take place from 9.00am to 12.00pm.
Afternoon sessions will take place from 1.00pm to 4.00pm.
This will amount to approximately half of the hours you previously had to allow all children to attend, taking into account new social distancing rules. Children will also be required to have a temperature check before they enter the setting (<37.3) and will be supported to wash their hands before entering their classrooms.
No food will be prepared on-site during this time, therefore every child will need to bring a packed snack and water bottle that can be refilled.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this period and we look forward to having the children back at nursery.
