Parents COVID Guidance
We anticipate that as parents of children who are about to return or starting Highworth Pre-School, you may be experiencing some mixed feelings. On the one hand there may be excitement at the prospect of returning to some kind of normality whereas on the other hand you may be experiencing some concerns or anxiety linked to current circumstances.
If you are feeling anxious about your child being at pre-school it will help your child if you are able to hide your anxiety. Children are very sensitive to parents’ emotions, if you are anxious your child will also be anxious, if you are excited, your child will be excited.
Important Parent Guidance
Wearing of Face Mask
As we are not always able to maintain a two-metre distance during drop off and pick up times, staff will be wearing visors or masks. Please Note: Pre-School staff will not wear face coverings when working with children in their bubble/room.
For our parents/carers we would advise that you too should wear a face covering for drop off and pick up for your own safety and the safety of others, however, we cannot enforce this.
What to Bring to Pre-School?
Revised Dropping off and Collection
On arrival at pre-school we would ask you to observe 2m social distancing whilst dropping children.
One child will be dropped off at a time and we would ask you to give that parent space to exit via Brookfield Fire Gate prior to you moving forward to drop off your child
We know that this is not ideal but a one way system is essential and at this time we would ask you to respect the Brookfield resident and don’t park in Brookfield.
Please Note: At this time parent access to the pre-school will be very limited and if unavoidable we would ask that you wear a mask whilst in the pre-school.
If you need to collect your child at a different time please could you call pre-school prior to arrival.
As Westrop School will also be accessing the site we would ask that you don’t arrive on the site more than 5 minutes before drop off/collection. We would also ask that once you have dropped off or collected your child, you make your way off the site immediately. This is to ensure that we can all manage social distancing.
A full risk assessment is displayed and can be emailed to parents if requested. This will be a working document reviewed regularly by the staff team.
If you have any concerns please discuss any concerns with staff or email – firstname.lastname@example.org – addressing any concerns with Helen Simpson, Manager, Highworth Pre-School.
The Management and Staff Team want to make this a positive experience for all and we are looking forward to seeing you at Highworth Pre-School.
