Re-opening Preschool on 1st June 2020

After the Prime Ministers announcement at the weekend we are currently putting in place plans to re-open to all children on 1st June 2020, as long as the Government confirm it is safe to do so.

More details on how we will do this and what it will look like will follow in the coming weeks. 

Update: 24th March 2020

We have had to make the difficult decision to fully close the Preschool until further notice due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all well and ask that you:

 

Stay Safe, Stay Home & Save Lives

We are CLOSED from 23rd March until further notice and will only accept children of keyworkers and vulnerable children 

 

We will only allow vulnerable children and children whose parents are classified as KEYWORKERS care at this provision until further notice

If you are a keyworker or have a child who is vulnerable and require care for your child over these coming weeks, please do get in touch to discuss your needs further.

More detailed information about who qualifies as a vulnerable child or keyworker, please look at the link below:

    • Catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue

    • Put the tissue in the bin

    • Wash your hands with soap and water

  • No visitors on the premises.

  • Access to the premises restricted to the front door only for parents/carers at drop off and collection times.
