Dear parents,

I hope that you all continue to be well in these uncertain times.

I am very aware of the key role that our nursery community plays in the lives of all of those associated with it :- parents, children, staff and trustees. During the coming few weeks especially, at this time of a second national lockdown, it will provide us all with a sense of continuity and familiarity that will help us to deal with the challenges of life during a pandemic.

In line with current government guidance we shall continue to operate as normal over the coming few weeks, and will remain vigilant with our systems for prevention of covid-19 infections and with our response if we should have a confirmed case of covid-19 within the nursery community or members of their households

We ask that you also help us to keep our nursery community safe and to continue to remain open for everyone.

Please notify us if a member of your household has covid-19 symptoms and has been asked to engage with the NHS Test and Trace process. We understand that we may be contacted by our local health protection team if they are advised of a positive case associated with the nursery. However, this system is far from perfect and we are reliant on our whole nursery community acting responsibly to keep everyone safe.

Many of you have asked about Sharon’s well being following her bike accident. We have passed on to her your many good wishes which she has really appreciated. She is making a steady recovery but we are not expecting her to return to nursery until after Christmas. We have covered Sharon’s absence with members of our existing team so the children should not notice too much disruption.

If you require any other information or guidance please do contact the nursery by phone or email in the first instance, we will respond as quickly as we can.

With many thanks for your ongoing support,

The All Saints Team

Please remember:-

WE ARE A NUT FREE ZONE

We have a child who has a fish and egg allergy in nursery. You are still welcome to send fish and egg in for your child’s lunch but please let a member of staff know.

All children to bring in a drink of water each day in a clearly named drinking cup.

All children to wear layers of clothes, we will continue to keep the nursery well ventilated through the winter months.

Bring a coat, hat and gloves on cold days which all need to be clearly named.
