Nursery 2 Phased reopening week beginning 22nd February 2021
The staff are really excited to welcome most of the children back to nursery after half term!
There will be a few changes that we need to inform you about. Firstly your child will change base rooms and this may mean that you will now have to use a different entrance for drop off and collections. (please see below for details).
Secondly the first week will be a phased return back, this is because the children have been away for a while and we want to ensure that their transition back is as smooth as possible. We hope to return to original sessions by Wednesday, however this will be dependent on how your child settles back.
Please be aware that those parents that require breakfast and after school provision, this service will be available from the week beginning 1st March.
Monday & Tuesday 22nd/23rd: Morning sessions: 9am-11am Afternoon Sessions: 12.30pm-2.30pm
Wednesday &Thursday 24th/25th: Morning sessions: 8.15am-11.45am Afternoon Sessions: 12.30pm-3.00pm/4.00pm
Due to safety and staffing risk assessment during this pandemic, parents must drop off and collect at agreed times with their child's keyworker.
