Here at The Willows we have reviewed the government guidance for our sector, along with other required guidance, and have implemented a number of extra measures to ensure that our staff, our children and their parents are protected during their time with us.
We have adapted our routine to encourage outdoor play and extra handwashing, and to discourage gatherings around activities etc. As always, the children are here to play, develop friendships, laugh and chit-chat with their peers, and secretly do some learning!
If your child is showing any of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms as per the latest guidance, please DO NOT bring them into nursery. Seek advice from 111 online or call 111 and get your child tested. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/
If you (the parent) are showing any of the symptoms, or another person in the household is, please refer to the following guidance and self-isolate accordingly:
Becoming unwell while at nursery
If a member of staff or a child becomes unwell or shows one of the signs of Coronavirus while at nursery, they will be isolated immediately and will be cared for by a member of the staff team wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Please do not be alarmed if you collect and observe the measures we have had to take. This is a mandatory requirement by the government, and this will therefore be protocol in these circumstances.
We strongly ask that if parents receive a call, they promptly collect their child and seek medical assistance. The same process will be applied for a member of staff, who will leave the nursery premises as soon as their personal belongings have been gathered together by the supporting team member.
Please ensure your contact details for parents, carers and emergency contacts are up to date following possible employment changes, etc.
Still unsure? If you have any questions or concerns about starting or returning to nursery, please contact us, as we will be happy to assist.
