WHAT WE DO IN YOUR CHILD’S SESSION TO KEEP THEM SAFE

 

  • All workspaces will be cleaned before the session and hygiene will be maintained during the session.

  • Hand gel pumps will be stationed at the entrance for the children to use as they arrive and leave.

  • Children will be expected to come into and leave class one at a time.

  • To avoid crowding and to maintain social distancing parents will not be permitted to enter the room with their child. Children will be admitted one at a time. When collecting you should wait outside at a safe distance from other parents until your child is brought to you.

  • Every child will have their own large table with chair at a two-metre distance from other tables and their own set of materials to use during the session.

  • We will have our own toilets which will be cleaned before and after each session.                                                   

  • The sessions will continue ONLINE in the event of a lockdown.                                                                            

LITTLE FRESH (18MTHS - 4YRS)

  • All equipment will be cleaned before the session and hygiene will be maintained during the session.

  • Hand gel pumps will be stationed at the entrance for use as you arrive and leave.

  • Nappy changes should be done in the designated baby change facility and not in the session
