Unfortunately, we have had a child test positive with COVID19 in the preschool. This means that the Big Tinkers room (the outside classroom) will be closed. We have checked with the local authority and to ensure we are following government guidelines, Big Tinkers classroom will be closed until Monday 25th January (unless there are any other cases).
Please read the letter below for further advice and information.
The main building will still be open as the children are in a separate bubble.
If you choose not to bring your Little Tinkers in, please could you drop us an email so that we have an idea of numbers.
We ask parents and carers to please wear a mask when they come into the entrance hall when dropping off and collecting children and to remember only one family in at a time.
We hope that everyone has had a lovely Christmas and we wish all our families a Happy, healthy New Year. Many thanks for your support, kind words and gifts.
We will continue to operate the one way system for collecting and dropping off children at the main building, and to pick up and drop children at the gate for Big Tinkers, to support our social distancing rules.
We will of course continue to ensure regular hand washing and good hygiene practice as well as risk assessing for the safety of children and staff. You can read our Risk Assessment by clicking on the box below and if you have any comments or questions, please email us.
Thank you again to everyone for your support and kindness. Stay safe and be kind.
In line with the latest Child Protection and Safeguarding guidelines published in September 2020, we have updated our policy and this can be found on our Policies page (Helpful information). All our policies are updated annually (or sooner if legislation dictates).
