Our Nurseries

Our Nurseries

We have four bright and spacious children’s day nurseries in Dartington, Dartmouth, Newton Abbot and Kingsteignton. Each has been rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, with many ‘Outstanding’ features.

Our nurseries are divided into age-appropriate areas and are run by professionally qualified and experienced staff to ensure children have both hours of fun, and the best start to their learning.

 

What is the advice on nurseries reopening?

The document ‘Our Plan to Rebuild: The UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy’ states ‘schools should prepare to begin to open for more children from 1 June. The Department for Education (DfE) revealed that keyworker and vulnerable children will still be able to attend early years settings as they are currently and if the transmission rate for Corona Virus decreases by 1 June, early years settings may also be able to open for all children.

 

The DfE is issuing guidance to the early years sector including:

 

– reducing group sizes and keeping children in small groups without mixing with others

– staggered break and lunch times, as well as drop offs and pick ups

– increasing the frequency of cleaning of toys and play equipment, reducing the used of shared items and utilising outdoor space

– removing soft furnishings, soft toys and toys that are hard to clean (such as those with intricate parts)

– frequent hand washing

This ‘marks the first step’ of having children back at Humpty Dumpty locations.
