We have some new updates following the government’s decision to close all schools, colleges and nurseries from Friday 20th March to contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
From Monday 23rd March, all our nurseries will only open for vulnerable children and those of key workers needed to support the country in these crucial times.
The government has now specified who falls under the term key worker as those employed in the sectors below:
- Health and social care including and support staff
- Education and childcare
- Local and national government
- Food production, distribution and sales
- Public safety and national security
- Utilities including gas, water and telecoms
Please see here for a full breakdown and further guidelines from the government.
Our nurseries will be closed for all other families until further notice and we will not be invoicing parents for April fees as they seek to make alternative childcare arrangements. We will continue to keep you updated with our plans and intentions so please check your emails and nursery Facebook pages for the latest information.
The response from our families has been amazing so far and we would like to thank you all for your ongoing support and understanding during this time.
And a huge thank you to our wonderful and dedicated staff who have really risen to the challenge! You truly are Early Years Heroes.
