From July 20th 2020 early years settings were able to offer places to their usual number of children again, and the need for separate bubbles was lifted. As such we have come back and re-opened our doors to all of our children. We have opened with a number of measures in place to keep our children and staff safe as guided and supported by the Government and our local Services for Young Children team. These measures help keep the risk of infection and the spread of Covid-19 low.
Please note we require our families to make AANS their sole Early Years provider for the foreseeable future.
To support our staff in taking their own children to school and picking them up; and to facilitate the additional cleaning undertaken at the beginning and end of each day, our opening times have changed.
They are currently:
Monday to Friday
We have adapted the layout within our hall which ensures our children have plenty of space to play and move around in, reducing the likelihood of areas becoming overcrowded.
We continue to have more 'snuffle' stations on hand to support and encourage blowing noses, and we continue to have hand-gel readily available in addition to frequent handwashing.
Please refer to our Covid-19 Polices and Procedures (found to the right) for more detailed information.
