Protective measures we are taking in light of coronavirus (COVID-19)
First and foremost, it goes without
saying that the safety of your child/children and of our staff is our top priority. We are working hard, following the latest government guidance, to develop and implement a number of new ways of
operating. This will allow us to open as safely as possible, focusing on measures that will help limit the risk of coronavirus transmitting within our setting.
Some of the steps we are taking in
readiness for reopening include:
- Washing hands on arrival to the setting.
- Asking parents and carers to drop their children off and collect them at
- Asking that anyone who is displaying coronavirus symptoms, or who lives
with someone who does, not to attend the setting. That includes children and staff who work here.
- Keeping our children in small groups with as much consistent staffing as
possible, and minimising contact with other groups around the setting.
- Cleaning our hands more often than usual. We have developed routines to
ensure children understand when and how to wash their hands, making sure they wash them thoroughly for at least 20 seconds using running water and soap and dry them thoroughly, or use alcohol hand
rub or sanitiser ensuring that all parts of the hands are covered.
- Ensuring our children understand good respiratory hygiene by promoting
the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach and ensuring a good supply of tissues and bins throughout the setting.
- Implementing an enhanced cleaning schedule, ensuring surfaces touched by
children and staff are cleaned regularly and throughout the day, including table tops, door handles and play equipment.
- Asking parents and carers to physically distance from each other and
from staff when dropping off and collecting their children and to limit drop off and collection to one parent or carer per household.
- Asking children not to bring toys or other items from home to the
setting unless this is essential to their health and wellbeing.
- The main room has been freshly decorated and has had a deep clean by
professional cleaners. This will be maintained throughout the day.
- The centre is not open to any public so there will be no other users
- Additional health and safety signs will be displayed around the
