It is unrealistic to socially distance with children in our care. Our priority is to maintain a clean, hygienic environment. We rotate the toys each day, steam clean toys and resources regularly, spray and wipe surfaces throughout the day and ensure good hand washing routines.
Children and staff use the antibacterial gel upon entering and leaving the building.
We have set up ‘snuffle stations’ in each room for the children to wipe their noses when necessary, dispose of tissues hygienically and then gel their hands.
We have removed all soft furnishings from the room, however the children still have access to a wide range of toys, books and resources and they continue to enjoy rich learning experiences.
We continue to use the outdoor spaces as before and aim to be outside everyday accept in the event of very bad weather.
There is also a one way system upon entering and leaving the premises to ensure social distancing between families at drop off and collection times.
