Government guide for Nurseries 24/05/2020

The Government has released today a Department for Education document on guidance regarding ‘A planning guide for early years and childcare settings’ re-opening from June 1st at the earliest.

Needless to say we will be studying this over the next few days and making sure everything is covered by our Safety Operating Procedure, released on the 20th of May 2020. Will will make amendements if necessary.
