Nursery Updates

We've had a super few days, we welcomed  our returners and many new families.  We're  happy to be able to use our inside classrooms again, as well as the abundance of safe, secure and exciting outside areas.  It's wonderful to see the children moving freely from inside to outside again, welcome back freeflow! 
Our furloughed staff are back, joining our lockdown team and we're all working hard, having to get used to a different way of working now, in an effort to keep everyone safe. Thanks to our parents, who've been amazing, following our very rigorous  Covid-19 policy. 
Thanks to our lovely children who, as always, are enthusiastic, happy and a joy to be with.  Here's to a happy and healthy Autumn 2020!
