PHASED RE-OPENING OF EARLY YEARS SETTINGS

Over the past few months, our Early Years settings have only been open to vulnerable and key worker children. We are pleased to tell you that we are now planning to re-open. 

Our Lakeside and Temple Hill Nurseries have remained open throughout the summer period but will be welcoming everyone back from 3 September. Our Oakfield Nursery and our Romford Pre-school will be re-opening for all children on Monday, 7 September and our Swanscombe Preschool will be opening to welcome you back on Monday, 21 September. Our Romford after school provision will re-open from Monday, 7 September and our off site after school provisions will be re-opening on Monday, 14 September.  Please take some time to read the important welcome back guidance below.

We have been working hard to ensure that our settings are safe for our staff and children.  We have carried out thorough risk assessments and implemented new operational procedures in line with Government guidance, and ask that you read and adhere to the following information.
