• Please do not send your child/children into Nursery if they have a temperature of 37.8 or above. Children that develop a temperature during their session will need to be collected immediately and will need to stay at home for 14 days.
  • Please do not send your child/children into Nursery if they have a persistent cough or a new cough. Children that develop a cough during their session will need to be collected immediately and will need to stay at home for 14 days.
  • If one person in any household has a cough or fever, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days.
  • Due to the new advice if any child/children develop a cough or temperature, we will be asking you to keep your child at home and follow the advice given.
  • If your child attends the setting and has a sibling or parent off with the symptoms, then they will also now need to be at home with their family for 14 days.
  • We are asking all parents/Carers to use hand gel as you enter the nursery. These will be available at the reception areas.
  • We are also asking all parents/Carers to not enter the classrooms. We ask that you wait at the classroom door for a member of staff to greet your child upon drop off and yourselves upon collection.
  • All Visitors have been asked to not visit the nurseries, except for Health care professionals where necessary. We have stopped all of our extra curricular activities and these will hopefully restart after Easter.
  • Delivery drivers will not be entering the nurseries and will be leaving deliveries outside for staff to collect safely.
  • We are temporarily stopping show rounds until the 14th April 2020. If you would like to register you child at any of our settings, please contact the nursery via email or phone and more information can be given to you by the nursery manager.
  • We are cleaning the nursery regularly along with all toys and equipment to ensure germs are eliminated.
  • Hand washing procedures are of extremely high importance and all staff and children continue to regularly wash hands.
  • We have limited a few of our activities that we provide for the children, ie baking and sand play to eliminate the risk of cross contamination.
  • Children will no longer be self serving their food or cutting up their own fruit, to ensure that highest level of food hygiene is adhered to.
  • Parents evenings and open days have also been postponed.

We appreciate that these new measures may cause some inconvenience to parents, but during these uncertain times we have to follow government advice, safeguard children and staff and do everything we can to contain this disease.

 

Thank you and best wishes,
