Covid-19 Safety Plan

Risk Assessment Plan Oct 2021

Our aim is to reduce the transmission of Covid-19 as much as possible within the nursery.  

Arrangements for Dropping/Collecting

  1. One-way system, through the nursery parents will come in the back (car Park) out the front then if parents want to speak to staff they can stand in garden/toddler room and other parents can still walk past to drop children off. .

  2.   We will be doing daily diaries for preschool to make handover time shorter. 

  3. Children in downstairs rooms can go straight into the room from the garden. Staff will come out to collect children who are in the upstairs room. Parents who want to bring children in  can do so.

  4. All toys, dressing up, books , dolls,rugs,garden toys,will be split into 4 separate sets,  this will be used then left for  at least 72hrs , out of the room before using again. This ensures toys will always be available and this reduces the amount of additional cleaning staff will need to do and enables them to spend more time with the children. It means the rooms will be empty at the end of the day which makes it easier to clean all surfaces

  5. If your child uses a dummy/comforter where possible would like parents to leave 1 dummy/ blanket at nursery not bring one in each day.

  6.  No toys/soft toys/cups to be bought in from home.

Maintaining a Clean Enviroment

1)  . Disinfectant  spray kept in each room, cloth  bought down with food bowls  so staff can clean tables

2)  Children to wash hands when they come in parents’ wash/ hand gel if they come into nursery.   .Surfaces sprayed and wiped after activity has finished. All other usual cleaning

Staff Notes

  1. Staff stay in own rooms no mixing.

  2.   We will try to keep the same staff to the same shifts each week so they only come in contact same peopl


3.   Staff will need to work the same times as the children in their room

  1. Anyone with symptoms needs to notify nursery and get tested we will need proof of testing before re admittance

2)  It is not necessary to close the business or workplace or send any staff home, unless government policy changes. 

  1. If anyone, needs clinical advice, they should go to NHS 111 online, or call 111 if they don’t have internet access. In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital.
