Another Important Update From Us!


Dear parents & carers,
We hope all of you and your families are well and we thank you once again for the huge wave of support we’ve received from you.
The government has issued new guidance on easing the lockdown so we want to confirm how this affects your nursery. As you know, we have remained open throughout the crisis – to care for the children of key workers and vulnerable children only. However this will change soon;
From June 1st, as per new guidelines, Leighs Nurseries will be open to ALL children. In order to organise our staff rotas for June, it would really help if you could confirm your child’s return.
Many of you will understandably be anxious about sending your little ones back to nursery. We are here to help and reassure you.Leigh and Jade are here to talk if you need to discuss things. All of our nurseries have stayed open the whole time, with children coming in every day, and with protective measures being implemented the whole time. These measures are laid out in detail below and will of course continue to be in place after June 1st;
So – unlike many nurseries which closed – we already have several weeks of experience in caring for children under the lockdown measures. We are ready to welcome all the children back into nursery and are really looking forward to seeing them again. More children have been returning to nursery every week and they have settled back in as if they’d never been away. Young children are remarkably resilient and deal with change better than we expect. Our team of staff have worked to their usual outstanding standards throughout the crisis, with smiles on their faces, providing some normality for the children during these challenging times.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who have already been in touch with us confirming their child’s arrangements from June.
Best wishes
Leigh & Paul x
