We will take all precautions to ensure good hygiene, pre-testing, mask wearing and social distancing to ensure that services can continue. Buildings may need to close for extensive cleaning if there has been confirmed positive Covid cases on sites. Staff will update all service users and social media, where possible, re arranging the staff and services to one of the other early years or children centres sites.
