Govt Announces Early Years Settings To Re-Open

May 22, 2020

Parents who have been wondering when their child’s nursery or pre-school is set to re-open will be pleased to hear it could be as early as next month.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave a speech to the nation over the weekend, announcing how the government plans to ease lockdown restrictions, after they were introduced at the end of March.

Among the changes are to re-open primary schools for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, as well as early years settings from the beginning of June, as part of its first phase of re-introducing educational and childcare settings for youngsters in the UK.

“From the week commencing June 1st 2020 at the earliest, we are asking nurseries and other early years settings to open to all children,” the government document read.

Many mums and dads might be cautious about sending their young children back to childcare where they are likely to interact with nursery staff and peers. However, the Prime Minister has said the reason for this first phase is because “there is high scientific confidence that children of all ages have less severe symptoms than adults if they contract coronavirus”.

What’s more, the younger the children are, the less severe the illness is likely to be.

In sending back just three year groups to start with, this limits the number of youngsters in the building, enabling social distancing procedures to be carried out to more easily.

It will also help lots of parents get back to work, as they might have been unable to fulfil their job commitments while having to provide schooling and childcare for their children over the last few weeks.

Wow!!!! Were to begin.. this is by far the best nursery I could have sent my children too. The staff are extremely... friendly helpful and ensure the children are cared for and they learnt so much. My children settled really well and have both enjoyed being here. Seeing them so happy and always excited for the next day at paintpots Manchester makes me feel so at ease leaving them. They are always involving parents in everything and make you feel like one big family. A massive thank you to everyone who works there and all you have done. Looking forward to extending our family into their welcoming nursery again in the more

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he... loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the... place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
