New children places are available as normal [subject to availability] so if you are looking for a place for your child - please do get in touch, we are currently conducting ''out of hours' visits by appointment.
But have made a slideshow 'tour' that we can send to you along with a 'meet the staff' slideshow upon confirmation of registration to help settle our new children.
In the mean time we  are happy to discuss your requirements via telephone or email.
We look forward to hearing from you.


What is happening now?

As we steadily travel along the roadmap through coronavirus we continue to follow the guidance provided by the Government, Department of Education, our Local Authority and Public Health England.

Since the latest changes in August 2021 we have been able to return to some normality. However there is still guidance suggesting we continue to have 'essential' visitors only into setting, maintenance work is carried out outside of operating hours of 9-3 and new parent visits are still booked at 3.30pm only when our children have gone home for the day. Parents continue to drop off and collect at the door [if you have concerns about the settling of new children please speak to their keyperson].
Thankfully we have been able to restore toys and equipment to where they belong enabling us to fully open both rooms for the children to access. Enhanced cleaning routines continue to ensure the safety of our children and staff. 

As social distancing is not required in early years we are fortunate to be able to have lots of space both inside and out which promotes natural social distancing, and most of our children love to be outside as often as they can this makes it easier. Just ensure they have appropriate clothing for the weather [layers of clothing work best as they can be removed if hot or put back on when cold]. We also continue to ensure their is adequate ventilation/fresh air flow with windows open. 

We no longer need to operate in bubbles - However this does mean that it is VERY important that all our families and staff and those within their extended social groups  follow the current Government guidance on coronavirus. This will help us all stay healthy and well. 
This means it is vital that all of us follow the correct procedures for anyone showing symptoms
