Temporary Closure Preston Park (Bavant Road) Nursery 4/8-6/8/21
3rd August 2021
Unfortunately a member of staff has had a positive PCR test and is part of the Nursery Management Team and they have come into close contact with a number of other staff members, including the Nursery Manager. NHS Test and Trace have contacted a number of our staff today and instructed them to self-isolate. In addition, the staff member did come into contact with a small number of children but as per recent changes to Government guidance we are no longer required to notify any close contacts to self-isolate. Please contact us at Head Office if you would like more information.
Sadly, this situation has left us without our usual Nursery Management Team and also extremely short staffed – to the point we are not able to meet our legal staffing ratios. As a result, we have no option but to completely close the nursery for the remainder of this week, starting tomorrow Wednesday 4 August. All being well, we plan to reopen as usual next Monday 9 August. We will confirm this to you via email by Friday lunchtime at the latest.
We can offer some children spaces at our other Hopscotch nurseries in Brighton and Hove for these days. If this is of interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject as ‘Alternative Nursery Placement’. We will try to accommodate all requests however due to space availability and staffing shortages at other nurseries we cannot guarantee this is possible. In this case, normal fees will apply.
Fees will be waived for children who do not attend any nursery during this time. Your current invoice will be automatically amended to reflect this change or, if you have already paid for August, the changes will be credited to your next invoice.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused. Thankyou again for your ongoing support.
