Chiddingstone Nursery will be open from Monday, 1st June 2020 for a phased return for some children. Please see our Coming Back to Nursery information to assist with your child’s return.
The safety of the children and staff is our top priority. We appreciate the Nursery will look different, however, we endeavour to maintain a nurturing, caring, safe and stimulating environment for all children.
It can be challenging answering questions and explaining the current situation, including social distancing, to children. Please find below two links which may be of help:
- A video explaining social distancing to children telling the story of a Hedgehog and a Tortoise https://www.facebook.com/113162570107145/posts/242866403803427/?vh=e
- A story written by Dr. Claire Standley, Dr. Hannah Smith and Dr. Eleanor Southgate. It is a wholesome, gentle and comforting story with familiar and homely illustrations aimed at helping to guide and reassure young children http://www.elsiestayshome.com/
