For our Parents
Important Coronavirus update Jan 2021
We're open for children in priority groups with a review on the 29th January
The team at Castle Day Nursery wants to thank you for your ongoing support. We have had to make necessary arrangements which may make our nursery feel a bit different, but we reassure you that the warm ethos remains, however safety still has to come first. We are looking forward to welcome back our existing and new families at the start of Autumn term 2020. In September we will institute a gradual return for our children. The children who have already attended Castle Day Nursery will be settled in the first week followed by settling in new children who will get allocated dates and times. However, we will prioritise new starters according to the COVID 19 priority list.
- Upon arrival you will need to keep 2m distance from the door (outside door, no adult will be permitted into the building) and an adult will greet your child. This Adult will be wearing a shield visor or mask.
- Your child needs to wear closed shoes as we are going to use disinfected mats to walk on before entering the building
- We will also take your child’s temperatures upon arrival however if your child is distressed upon arrival, we will take a temperature once calm and settled.
- Once entered into the building a member of staff will great your child and will help them wash their hands or use hand sanitizers.
- Lunch boxes need to be made of hard material i.e. a plastic container so we can wipe it with antibacterial spray. Please ensure that ice pack is included in your child’s lunchbox.
- Please label all the lunchboxes and other items. Any home toys/comforters/blankets are not allowed.
The children will be able to rotate in different areas of our nursery to maximize the distancing. Our cleaning routines have increased, and toys/equipment are rotated on a weekly/daily basis and steam cleaned or disinfected etc.
For new starters :
We will be in contact with new Parents/Carers concerning you start date, time and settling in procedure.
If your child displays any recognised symptoms, please do not send your child in and follow the procedure for isolation and inform the nursery.
If your child becomes ill at the nursery with the symptoms, we will need to take him/her to the isolation room and a member of staff will need to wear full PPE and observe social distancing until you are able to collect your child. Your child and the remainder of the family would be able to get tested for Covid19. If the test is negative, child will be able to return to nursery when well enough to return.
We will follow the current Government Guidelines for COVID19 in Early Years Settings which might be subject to changes.
Please any questions e mail Adrijana at email@example.com we will try to answer any questions or alternatively you can call us.
Thank you for your understanding
Castle Day Nursery.
You as a Parent...
A child who is tense or unhappy will not be able to play or learn properly, so it is important for parents and Pre-school staff to work together to help the children to feel confident and secure in the group. This takes longer for some children and parents should not feel worried if their child takes a while to settle.
Our parents notice board is in the cloak room, please check regularly as we often put useful information or notices of forthcoming events there and do look for regular updates on our website.
You are welcome into Pre-school at any time. Should you wish to participate in a voluntary parents rota, we would be only too pleased to accommodate anyone who has some spare time and wishes to share their particular skills with us.
