COVID 19 – Information for Families Posted On

If your child attends Cheeky Monkey’s Day Nursery and you have tested positive for COVID – 19, are suspected of having COVID – 19 or are self-isolating, please inform a member of the Nursery Management Team and do not enter the nursery.

We have policies to protect against the spread of any serious disease, including infection control, and we closely monitor and follow guidance from the relevant Public Health agencies, as well as the World Health Organisation and local health authorities.

Staff at Nursery.

The regulator bodies of childcare in England has confirmed that the current situation meets their threshold of “exceptions” in the Early Years Statutory Framework. This allows nurseries to make adjustments in their staff to children ratio’s if necessary, to continue to provide the care and education. We will be carrying out risk assessments where changes are needing to be made and the quality of care, safety and security of the children will remain paramount.

 Resources for Families.

As news of COVID-19 rapidly evolves, adults and children alike may be feeling concerned. During this time, we know parents and families can benefit from extra support at home, in both offering reassurance to children and increasing health, hygiene, and safety practices.
