[01/27/21]   Good morning, thank you for all your well wishes. Just to keep you all updated, we've had another confirmed case in a child this time. Please keep an eye out for any symptoms in your children. Stay safe everyone

[01/26/21]   Good afternoon, unfortunately we had to send children and staff home yesterday as we had a confirmed covid case. I have now been informed that another member of staff has tested positive yesterday. Therefore if your child was in nursery yesterday they will have to self isolate for 10 starting from today. Due to the fact that all staff have now got to isolate for 10 day's the nursery has to close. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes. We are alarmed that we have had 2 confirmed cases within 48 hours and hope that no one else comes down with it. Hopefully the 2 staff members will not become too poorly and we wish them a speedy recovery. These are worrying times for us all. Please get in touch via Facebook with any queries and hopefully I will be able to divert the phone so that I can take any questions from tomorrow. Everyone stay safe

[01/25/21]   Good morning, we hope you are safe and well. We would just like to say that during these scary times if you can keep your child/ren at home please do so. If you have a day off work please keep your children safe at home. Also we would like to add that we would hope that everyone is sticking to the rules of lockdown to keep everyone safe. If we find that anyone has been breaking the rules and visiting other households that they shouldn't then we have the right to refuse childcare. We have other children and our staff to keep safe. We hope that you understand this.

[01/05/21]   Good afternoon everyone, following the news from the government last night we have been in consultation with the local council. Unfortunately due to this news we are only able to offer childcare to children of keyworkers and vulnerable children. It is with a heavy heart that we do this but we have to think of our staff and their families. It's an awful time for everyone and really hope the situation changes soon so we can get back to normal. We really are sorry if this causes any inconvenience. We ask that you keep an eye on our page for updates on reopening. Also you can check tapestry out for ideas on how to keep your children occupied. We hope everyone stays safe.

[11/19/20]   Good afternoon everyone, due to advice from public health we are having to close. A child in the setting has tested positive and 5 staff and several children have been in close contact. Therefore the staff in close contact have to self isolate for 14 days leaving not enough staff to remain open. This is a terrible time for us all but I feel we have done really well as we have not had a single case till now. We hope them parents that are having to self isolate with their children don't go stir crazy and hope everyone stays safe. We are able to re open on the 2nd December so we will see you all then. Please keep checking our page as we have asked parents to inform us if their child/ren become ill or anything changes. Stay safe

[11/05/20]   Good evening all, I am very sorry but unfortunately we will have to close tomorrow. The heating has gone off so we have no heating or hot water. As you will all be aware we don't close our doors often but due to the current situation we feel that we have no choice. We have carried on as best we could today in the hopes we could get a plumber out. However they cannot come and look till Saturday. We hope this does not cause you to much disruption.
