Corona Virus update for our sites
This page will be regularly updated with information on our sites closures.

Dear Parent/ Carer

The government has announced the ‘partial closure’ of childcare providers (including childminders) and schools with care still being provided for key workers and vulnerable children.

As it stands, we are keeping the following sites open for key workers children.
– Oadby
– Aylestone
– Narborough

As nurseries we continue to sanitise and deep clean all areas on a daily basis and are using excellent hygiene practices with the children. We request that as parents you continue to follow the same practices on arrival to nursery and of leaving.

Key workers and vulnerable children
‘Vulnerable children’ includes children who are supported by social care, those with safeguarding and welfare needs, including child in need plans, on child protection plans, ‘looked after’ children, young carers, disabled children and those with education, health and care (EHC) plans.

Only one parent is required to be a key worker to be able to access childcare. This includes those working in:

– Health and social care
– Education and childcare (including nursery staff and childminders)
– Key public services
– Local and national government
– Food and other necessary goods
– Public safety and national security
– Transport
– Utilities, communication and financial services

We thank you all for your continued support in these worrying times and continue to put the safeguarding and welfare of all our children, staff and parents at the forefront.

If you have any further information, please contact our sites.

Thank you

Corona Virus – What you need to know
What Is the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
At the end of 2019, a new type of coronavirus began making people sick with flu-like symptoms.
The illness is called coronavirus disease-19 — COVID-19 for short. The first cases were diagnosed in people who had visited a market in China that sold live seafood and animals. The virus spreads easily and has now affected people in many countries.

What Are the Signs & Symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
COVID-19 causes a fever, cough, and trouble breathing. Symptoms are a bit like those people have with a cold or the flu. The virus can be more serious in some people, and may lead to illnesses like pneumonia.

How Does Coronavirus (COVID-19) Spread?
Experts are still investigating how COVID-19 spreads. In general, coronaviruses spread through droplets sent into the air when people cough or sneeze. The virus can spread in communities from one person to another, and through contact with surfaces that have germs on them.

Is the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Dangerous to Children?
Experts are still learning about COVID-19, so we don’t have a lot of information about it yet. There are far fewer cases of the virus reported in children. Most of them caught the infection from someone they lived with or a family member. The virus seems to cause a milder infection in children than in adults or older people.

Call your doctor if your child or someone in your family has a fever, cough, or other flu-like symptoms. Tell the doctor if they have been near someone with COVID-19 or lived in or traveled to an area where lots of people have the coronavirus.

Make sure your children have all their vaccinations. Protect them against illnesses like measles and the flu. This helps keep them out of the doctor’s office or hospital where they could be around other germs, including the coronavirus. Plus, kids who have another infection may have a harder time getting better if they do get the coronavirus. It’s not too late to get a flu shot!

Experts around the world are studying and tracking COVID-19 and are taking steps to prevent it from spreading. This means identifying people who have the virus and anyone they come into contact with.
