Early years providers are already open to priority groups such as children of key workers and vulnerable children. The latest government advice is that all eligible children attend – it is no longer necessary for parents of eligible children to keep them at home if they can and they should be encouraged to attend educational provision where it is appropriate for them to do so.  Early years providers should begin to welcome back children of all ages from 8 June. In some cases it may be necessary for providers to introduce a temporary cap on numbers, to ensure that children are kept in small groups, and to avoid mixing of children between groups.

Our Early Years team are constantly monitoring which childcare providers are open and offering child care for the children of key workers. If you’re a key worker and want to discuss any urgent childcare requirements please contact Gail Alder on 07920 082 811.

Please do not rely on people who are considered extremely vulnerable to coronavirus for childcare.

Please do everything you can to make sure children aren’t mixing in a way which can spread coronavirus – they should observe the same social distancing advice as adults:
