Following current government guidance, we politely request that all adults and visitors to the Nursery wear a face covering.  Especially during child handovers with our staff team.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

This morning was definitely a reminder that winter is on its way. The children from our ‘Being 2’ group found ice in the garden. Please remember to send your children to Nursery in warm, waterproof outdoor clothes and wellies – as the children play in the garden every day.
We agree with Wainwright: “there is no ‘bad weather’ just inappropriate clothing”
Gloves and hats are good, although we would discourage long scarves. Please name your child’s belongings to help us keep mix ups to a minimum.🌧🌦❄️💨☔️

Due to an outbreak of Covid19 our staff team are required to isolate and we are therefore unable to open.

We have received a response from Public Health England, and can confirm that the nursery will re-open to children attending our Baby Room on Monday 05th July

Sunshines & Rainbows and our Being Two room will reopen on Tuesday 06th July
If children or family members test positive please inform the Nursery via email: office@bluewindmill.net and please follow isolation guidelines.
July Invoices / Fees
Please be advised that Nursery will apply credit to accounts, HOWEVER, as all of our staff are isolating this week we request that parents pay into their accounts as the current invoices stand and we will credit / refund where appropriate before the end of July. This will be reflected in the next invoice.
In summary: all accounts will be credited in August invoice. If your child will not be attending in August you will receive a refund later in July.
