Message for our Nursery Parents and Staff: Opening 24th August

Welcome to the Chiltern Nursery & Training College.

We were very pleased to say that following the nursery closure due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have successfully implemented a phased reopening of the nursery.

From the week beginning 24th August all of our children will be back with us and from September we be ready to welcome some new families to our nursery. The children have settled back into nursery far better than we could have ever anticipated and have adapted to and enjoyed the new routines and ways in which we are now required to work.

In line with Government guidelines and our comprehensive Covid 19 Risk Assessment, our children are cared for in small room ‘bubbles’ of up to 16 in the over 2s rooms and 12 in the under 2s rooms, with assigned staff members and direct access to their own garden spaces. We have assigned routes for children to be dropped off and collected, with nursery staff greeting their children at the designated external doors. This way of working helps us to encourage social distancing with parents and staff members, reduces the number of people entering the building and the contact between staff members and children in each of the room ‘bubbles’. We have rigorous daily cleaning routines of toys, equipment and the building. We have increased hand washing procedures and increased hygiene procedures throughout the nursery. We have very clear and thorough procedures to following for suspected cases of the Coronavirus.

We have worked really hard at each phase of the reopening to ensure we have done so in ways that best protect the health, safety and wellbeing of children, parents and staff members, the safety of whom has always been and continues to be paramount.

We would like to thank all of our parents, both present and future, for their support and patience during these really unusual times.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website. If you require any further information, please call us on 0118 947 1847.
