Christmas 2020

Children in Need

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who took part and made donations during the “Children in Need” week an amazing £548 was raised       

                                                Staff Changes

Dion Fry joined the Piglet room on Thursdays and Fridays in September and continues to support other rooms as necessary.  We would also like to welcome Georgia Polden who is now joining us to cover staff sickness and holidays as required. 

Covid-19 Tests/Results

We sincerely hope that no children will be affected with any symptoms requiring a Covid test, especially so close to Christmas. However, we have a duty of care and responsibility to ‘Track and Trace’ and therefore inform others if they have come into contact with a confirmed positive case for both staff and children.  If this does happen, even if it is between 21st December- 4th January please could you emai immediately to inform us of a positive case. We will then email parents/carers of those that have been in close contact with anyone to alert them.


Visit from Father Christmas

Unfortunately, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to have our annual visit however, we will be having a virtual video with Father Christmas for the children and each child will receive a present to take home.  We feel it is important to ensure as much normality as is safe to do so to help the children celebrate Christmas.


Christmas closure

The nursery will be closed for the Christmas and New Year period on the following dates: –

Friday 25th December – Friday 1st January inclusive.

Therefore, our first day back in 2021 will be Monday 4th January

The staff would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.

Bad Weather Closure 

We will always do our utmost to make sure that the nursery opens for 51 weeks per year; however, on rare occasions we are not always able to manage this, especially in severe winter weather conditions.

During past unexpected closures we have been fortunate and grateful to have had local staff that have walked to the nursery to notify parents of our decision to close, but this is no longer possible as staff have moved to other areas.

We therefore ask that parents/carers take note of the information below and refer to it should the need arise in the coming months.

Nursery closures will be posted on KCC Website under school/nursery closures.

 Alternatively, any parents wishing to email the nursery to find out about closures will have their emails answered or look on our website
