• Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature will be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. Government guidance will state that “they can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend”.



*In order to protect our workforce and families at nursery, if your child tests positive for Covid19 I recommend that they remain at home isolating until they have a negative lateral flow. Many thanks for your support at this time.

Our position re non attendance of self-funded places:-

‘In line with government guidance we are currently open and therefore your child’s session is unable to be refunded for non attendance. In the event of closure due to government restrictions or staff shortage sessions will be credited’.


Due to staff shortage nursery is only open to key worker and vulnerable children until further notice.

In the event of nursery closure due to government restrictions enforcing schools and Early Years settings to close we will open for vulnerable children and children of key workers only (upon receipt of written evidence).

In the event of restricted opening due to government advice or staff shortage children will be allocated places using the following priority structure:-

1) Children who have been awarded inclusion support or 2yr funding by West Sussex and Children of key workers (upon receipt of written evidence).
2) School leavers born in the summer term – April 1st – August 31st.
3) School leavers born in the Spring term – January1st – March 31st.

5) Non school leaving 3yr olds awarded 15 hours of government funded places.
6) Children who have self funded places – sessions missed will be credited to the following terms invoice.
