The affects and changes Covid-19 will have on our reopening for our service users will be as follows
- drop off and pick up times
- daily routines
- face to face meetings
- social distancing
Drop off and pick up times – Parents as before will still not be permitted into the nursery, a familiar member of staff will be present at the door to collect your child and take them to the playroom. Parents must respect all social distancing in place.
*UPDATE OCTOBER: Can parents please ensure that when they are picking up or dropping off their child that they wear a face mask within the communal building*
Cleaning – We have updated our cleaning rotas to ensure that we are cleaning the building and sterilising all the toys daily. We clean everything twice a day in line with our cleaning rotas. Staff and children have access to hand sanitiser and are encouraged to wash their hands every 30 mins. We also have the fogging machine which we use every week to ensure the nursery is a sterile environment for our children and staff
Routines – Learning experiences and resources will remain as normal as possible for our children however we will have limited resources on hand each day so that these are cleaned and sterilised to ensure infection control measures are well adhered to. We have removed sand and water play just now and will slowly introduce these back into play as measures ease. Children will be served lunch by a member of staff and again self service will be introduced as measures ease.
Face to Face Meetings – Following on from current guidelines, we are minimising all face to face meetings, however please be reassured that we will make all necessary arrangements to accommodate you and your needs.
Payments – Our preferred payment of fees is by bank transfer, standing order or card payments via telephone.
Social distancing – No physical contact between staff members and other adults can take place. We are asking all adults to respect the social distancing guidelines the Scottish Government have set out; this is currently 2 meters
