COVID-19 

 

As local restrictions have changed, the preschool has lifted restrictions. We still have some procedures in place to ensure we provide a safe environment for the children and staff. 

Our setting still has three groups but we all play together as a whole instead of in bubbles. The setting is currently back to normal times 8.30am till 3.10pm 

  These changes can change at any time and parents/carers will be notified.

 

 

To minimise children bringing lots of things into and out of preschool, we ask if you could leave your children's bags and lunchboxes at home.

Please could you bring named spare clothes/shoes to be put in your child's tray.

If in nappies, please could you supply nappies, wipes and nappy sacks all named to be kept at preschool and these will be stored in there own tray in the changing area. We will notify you when running low so you can top up.

 

Lunch club

We have had to put procedures in place for lunch club. These include providing paper bags to put lunch in so we can then throw away after use. Please ensure you label the bag with your child's name.

We are still providing hot lunches at an additional fee, please ask a member of staff if you would like your child to have one as these need to be pre-ordered.

If the school is closed then we are not able to provide hot lunches, sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
