Operating from June 1st 2020
On June 1st 2020 we were able to re-open our doors, and that was WONDERFUL! 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.
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
0930-1400 for Critical Workers and Vulnerable children.
0945-1400 for all our other children.
This ensures a staggered drop off supporting social distancing and enables Critical Workers to drop off in a timely manner.
Spaces and Bubbles
Government guidance and our Covid-19 risk assessments informed us we could offer provision to 16 children, the maximum number for a "Bubble". Our environment enables us to make this main bubble smaller meaning we have two bubbles of 8 children. Each bubble has their own Key Person and they will stay in these bubbles for the foreseeable future. Any changes would be subject to a thorough risk assessment and further guidance.
Our hall has been divided in to 2 play zones, one for each bubble; and there is a 2 metre passage way between these play zones keeping our 2 bubbles separate at all times. The zones are a mirror image of each other in layout and resources, meaning our bubbles have their own sets of resources to use.
Please refer to our Covid-19 Polices and Procedures (found to the right) for more detailed information.
We are exceedingly hopeful Early Years will be able to return to as "normal" as possible come September 2020. When further updates and guidance from the Government become available we will have a better understanding of what the this will look like.
Should current measures remain in place it is highly likely we will not have any spaces available.
If you would like to potentially join us in September 2020 please be sure to have a look at our Prospectus below and our Covid-19 Polices and Procedures; and complete our Application to Join form returning it to us either via post or email. We will add you to our system and will confirm places as soon as we are able to. Please note until further notice spaces are allocated in order of priority. Please see our Covid-19 Polices and Procedures for further details.
