Clapping for our Heroes

Weekly clapping will resume once again to show support and appreciation for all frontline workers.

We will be clapping for our incredible St. George’s team as well as all other nursery front line workers. They have been working tirelessly during challenging circumstances with continuous changes to government guidance and in turn continuous changes to ways of working.

Our team have remained positive throughout and have shown great creativity, innovation and an incredible willingness to support the children.

Here are some of our favourite quotes from what members of the community in the UK have had to say about childcare workers during this pandemic. We couldn’t agree with these more:

“Our nursery staff are playing a vital role in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19 and thus saving lives. They really are heroic, and it’s hard to find words to express how much I appreciate their efforts.”

“By looking after the children of key workers like our doctors and nurses, you are making a massive difference and you are helping to save lives.

Your kindness, gentleness and patience during these difficult times are a great example and a rainbow of hope to everyone looking to deal with this crisis. Thank you.”

“The Early Years practitioners are themselves critical workers. When we clap for carers, we should remember the work they are doing alongside all our other critical workers who are doing so much to provide key services for the people who need our support.”

“#StandUpForEarlyYears: NHS Doctor Says Childcarers Are ‘Unsung Heroes” – An NHS doctor says that support from her local nursery enabled her to save lives in the battle against COVID-19.

‘I cannot see how either my husband or I could have done our jobs without their help,’ she said.”
