Coronavirus

We are open and operating as per government guidelines

Changes to our practice

Our priority is keeping our children and staff safe while operating a service as close to normal as possible.  We appreciate that this will mean the setting is not as colourful and interesting as normal, however this is a short term change for the long term benefit of all.  

Below are a list of changes we have made to ensure our setting is as safe as possible from the risk of Covid-19

  • Increase in hygiene procedures such as handwashing and cleaning of environment
  • Resources allocated to rooms and not shared across bubbles
  • Removal of potential high contamination activities such as sand and water play
  • Removal of soft furnishings that could retain the virus
  • Our rooms are well ventilated
  • Our staff complete Covid 19 health declarations
