Covid 19 Statement
Following the recent Government announcement, we will reopen Rand Farm Park Day Nursery and Preschool from 1st June 2020.
Helen will be contacting each parent individually to discuss your needs for the coming months and explaining the social distancing and other measures we have put in place, following Government guidance.
We do have additional places available for any parents looking for childcare.
Our nursery is situated within the farm park with acres of open spaces and daily visits to the farm.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Nursery measures for Coronavirus
We are very excited to be able to welcome you back to Rand Farm Park Day Nursery and Preschool. In Order to keep you, your children and our team safe, we have taken the following precautions.
If you, your child, or any member of your household are showing symptoms of Coronavirus (new constant cough, high temperature or a loss of taste/smell) please do not send your child to nursery but contact Helen immediately. Please follow current government guidance for isolating and do not return to nursery until the necessary time has elapsed.
Arriving at Nursery
When you arrive at Nursery, please park at least two meters away from the next car.
The gate from the car park will be left open during drop off. Please ensure that your child is with you at all times. Following morning drop off, the gate will be closed. The gate will be re-opened for lunch time collections and drop off and again around 4pm.
As you approach nursery, you will see cones set out at two-meter intervals. If parents and children arrive at the same time as another family, please wait at a cone and a member of our team will collect you.
When arriving at the Nursery, please ensure you are wearing a mask.
When returning to your vehicle, please respect social distancing guidelines.
Please wait at the black gate; a member of staff will welcome you back in to nursery. A member of our team, who will be wearing a face mask, will take and record your child’s temperate. As the children are not used to masks, our team will stand back from the gate (2 meters,) say hello to the child and then put on their mask. If children are apprehensive about having their temperature taken, we may ask you as the parent to help with this (full instructions will be given.)
Please bring a bag of clothes for your child that can be left at nursery.
If your child is bringing a packed lunch and/or tea, please ensure all containers are disposable and are sent in a disposable bag, this will be disposed of before collection. All cutlery will be provided.
Once inside, staff PPE will be removed, with the exception of nappy changing or helping children at the toilet (which is normal practice).
If a child becomes ill and develops Coronavirus symptoms during nursery hours, they will be taken with a member of staff to isolate in the main entrance. In this area, our team will wear full PPE and comfort the child whilst waiting for a parent/carer to collect them. Please follow the government guidance for isolating and do not return to nursery until your child and household have recovered from any illness.
We are now using a fogging machine in our childcare rooms that will provide a further level of infection control against Coronavirus
All of our staff are being tested twice a week using Lateral flow tests
Children who are required to isolate and have a sibling in the setting, they too will be required isolate to prevent the spread of Covid-19
Collecting your Child
Please ensure when collecting your child you are wearing a mask.
Ring the nursery doorbell and then return to the coned area. A member of staff (who will be wearing a mask) will bring your child to you. Where possible this will be your child’s key worker.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact Helen on 01673 262021 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, Rand Farm Park Team.
