During the last 8 weeks a core group of staff have allowed us to stay open and provide care to Key worker and vulnerable children and this will continue. Also, the Government is indicating that previously where they have asked children in these groups if they can stay at home, to do so, they are now indicating that these children can return to settings. We will continue to provide this support for Key worker and vulnerable children.
From the 1st of June, we are being asked to welcome back more of our children and we do look forward to doing this and seeing you all soon.
We have put together Site Operating Procedures (see below) to create physical distance between specific cohorts of children, staff and parents. This will involve staggered drop off and collection times, (see below) our rooms are sectioned off and allow small groups to work separately, there will be no transitions between rooms for children until September at the earliest following guidance. We will continue to undertake lots of outdoor activities within specific small groups each separated.
We have undertaken a full risk assessment (see below). We will continue to uphold stringent hygiene, health and safety procedures covering hand washing, cleaning rotas, waste disposal, and laundry. We will continue to use PPE for nappy changing and administration of first aid, but we will not be wearing face masks during interaction with our children.
We know that this is still an exceedingly difficult time for many of you and that the concerns and worries you have as parents for your children are still there. At the moment not everyone will feel secure in returning to Nursery and we completely understand this. However, Jigsaws are continuing to follow government and industry standards and most of all make sure that our children, staff and families are as safe physically and mentally as possible.
SEE YOU SOON AND KEEP WELL
