Thought I would write to you all with a brief catch up on how things are going at present.
I hope that you are keeping safe and well and are coping with this continued Lockdown for you and your family. Whilst it does feel like being been in an endless dark tunnel it appears that there may be a slight glimmer of light beginning to break through, but that should be treated with great caution so as not to put it out again in our haste to return to ‘normal’. What will ‘normal’ feel like for us all?
When we are able to re-open Pre-School there will inevitably need to be additional measures maintained so we can continue to protect children, families and staff from any resurgence of this Covid-19 disease. I will contact you at that point to confirm what these additional measures will be. In spite of this we will look forward to welcoming you and your children back so we can support each other to re-build lives and plan for children’s futures wherever this may be.
It has been really lovely to see photos on facebook of what you have all been up to and how you have been spending time playing and learning at home. Please keep posting.
On my next visit to the Pre-School I may take some photos of the setting that will help children to be reminded of the rooms and equipment that is still there waiting for their return. It is a really eery place without the voices and laughter of children.
Tomorrow night would have been our planned Parents Evening where you could have met to chat with your child’s key person about your child’s progress and shared ways to support learning at home. If we go back to work before the summer we will plan another date to do this with you.
All the staff have been furloughed apart from myself so that I can keep things ticking over. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are getting on. Drop me an email as I’m working from home and am in touch with my colleagues who are eager to hear what you are up to.
Take Care & Keep Safe
