COVID-19 (Coronavirus)-Update - 3rd April 2020

 

 

Public Service Announcement,

 

We are writing to keep you updated as to our operations here at Kidz 1st Day Nursery.

Due to unforeseen circumstances in this pandemic, we will be temporarily closed to all parents (including critical workers and vulnerable children) from the 6th – 17th April 2020. We will be opening back up to critical workers and vulnerable children on Monday 20th April 2020 at 8:30 am. Our hours will continue to be 8:30 am – 4 pm, Monday to Friday from the 20th April 2020 until further notice.

 

 

 

 

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)-Update - Friday 27th March 2020

 

 

Public Service Announcement,

 

Due to recent developments with overcrowded transport and the accompanying health risks to our staff, we will be changing our nursery hours for critical workers.

 

From Monday 30th March 2020, our opening hours will be 8:30am – 4:00pm during this COVID-19 pandemic.

 

This will allow our staff to travel at less crowded times, help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and lower the risk posed to your children, our staff and their families. As the outbreak progresses, we may need to update these hours in response to government advice, staff numbers and any possible unforeseen issues, so this may be subject to change on a daily basis.

 

We thank you for your understanding at this worrying time.

 

 

 

 

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)-Update - Friday 20th March 2020

 

 

Public Service Announcement,

 

We have now received further details about the pending nursery closures, and who is eligible to continue to attend nursery during this time.

 

Registered early years providers have been advised to close until further notice on Friday 20th March 2020 in line with the guidelines for schools. However, we have been asked to remain open ONLY for children of critical workers and vulnerable children who ABSOLUTELY need to attend.

 

If you are a critical worker, your children should not attend nursery if you:

  • can work from home
  • are self-isolating
  • are not working
  • can make alternate arrangements without endangering those in the stringent social distancing category.

Please note that there is no requirement for parents and carers to send their children to school if they do not need or wish to do so.

 

 If it is at all possible for children to be at home, every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.

 

Critical Workers are defined as:

  • Health and Social Care:
    • Doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, social workers, care workers, frontline health and social care staff including volunteers;
    • Support and specialist staff required to maintain the UK’s health and social care sector;
    • Those working as part of the health and social care supply chain, including producers and distributors of medicines and medical and personal protective equipment.
  • Education and Childcare:
    • Childcare, support and teaching staff, social workers and those specialist education professionals who must remain active during the COVID-19 response to deliver this approach.
  • Key Public Services:
    • Those essential to the running of the justice system, religious staff, charities and workers delivering key frontline services, those responsible for the management of the deceased, and journalists and broadcasters who are providing public service broadcasting.
  • Local and national government:
    • Only those administrative occupations essential to the effective delivery of the COVID-19 response, or delivering essential public services, such as the payment of benefits, including in government agencies and arms-length bodies.
  • Food and other necessary goods:
    • Those involved in food production, processing, distribution, sale and delivery, as well as those essential to the provision of other key goods (for example hygienic and veterinary medicines).
  • Public safety and national security:
    • Police and support staff, Ministry of Defence civilians, contractor and armed forces personnel (those critical to the delivery of key defence and national security outputs and essential to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic), fire and rescue service employees (including support staff), National Crime Agency staff, those maintaining border security, prison and probation staff and other national security roles, including those overseas.
  • Transport:
    • Those who will keep the air, water, road and rail passenger and freight transport modes operating during the COVID-19 response, including those working on transport systems through which supply chains pass.
  • Utilities, communication and financial services:
    • Staff needed for essential financial services provision (including but not limited to workers in banks, building societies and financial market infrastructure), the oil, gas, electricity and water sectors (including sewerage), information technology and data infrastructure sector and primary industry supplies to continue during the COVID-19 response, as well as key staff working in the civil nuclear, chemicals, telecommunications (including but not limited to network operations, field engineering, call centre staff, IT and data infrastructure, 999 and 111 critical services), postal services and delivery, payments providers and waste disposal sectors.

We will be sending a confirmation email to all parents who are defined as critical workers with further details.

We will also send an update regarding fees for non-attending children on Monday 23rd March 2020, and will continue to keep you updated with re-opening dates and any other relevant information when we receive it.
