Update 11th May 2020
England is preparing to move to a new phase in the response to Covid-19 and yesterday, the Prime Minister announced that some workers will be encouraged to return to work 'if they cannot work from home'. Until we receive further clarity from the DfE, we will continue to offer places for children of parents who meet the criteria of front line staff. If your circumstances have changed and you believe you may now fall into this category, please complete the form below.
Update 20th April 2020
Our nursery is open to children eligible for emergency childcare. If you think you need childcare simply complete the 'Front Line Staff' form below.
New Starters: If your child was due to start nursery in April, please email us to confirm you accept your nursery place if you have not already done so.
Enquiries: We have added a form you can complete if you would like to register your child for a nursery place (we are still taking registrations, although children cannot attend until further notice).
Update 2nd April 2020
Over the Easter holidays we are closed for deep cleaning and essential maintenance. We will reopen on Monday 20th April to those children eligible for emergency childcare. We are working with other nurseries and child minders to ensure childcare is available should you need it over Easter. Please email nursery if you require support.
Update 23rd March
In these uncertain times, it may be the case that parents / carers who were not eligible for Front Line Childcare may be eligible at some point in the future. We want to remind you that we are doing our very best to support you, and if you think you need childcare simply complete the 'Front Line Staff' form below.
Update 20th March 2020
Just this morning, the government released guidance on what qualifies as 'Front Line Staff'. This information is available at:
From Monday 23rd March we will be closed to children unless you believe you fall into a front line category.
We will contact parents as soon as we can with information that will hopefully answer your questions. We are going to send out letters today and will also post these on our Facebook page as well as here on our site. For those families eligible for childcare next week we will contact you via email later this afternoon at the earliest. We need to work out estimated numbers and staffing arrangements. However, I can confirm that our offer of childcare hours will be reduced to 9.00am to 3.00pm every day. We thank you so much for your patience and understanding at this complex and worrying time.
Update 19th March 2020
From Monday 23rd March, nursery will be closed for most children. If you believe you are within the 'Front Line Staff' category, please complete the table below. Due to ongoing uncertainty around arrangements for 'Front Line Staff' we will continue to keep relevant parents updated.
We are currently reviewing our continuity procedures and seeking advice in order to best prepare for closures, whilst supporting parents and carers wherever possible.
We will update this page regularly, and will ensure parents are given as much notice as possible regarding closure or disruption to service.
