We continue to review our Covid 19 practices and procedures on a daily basis. NO new guidance has come out from the Care Inspectorate / Scottish Government since 10/08/20. We therefore will continue to implement this very thorough guidance within the nursery. You can find our Covid 19 Policy and our Reopening Strategy on our website. This will be updated to coincide with new guidance or changes in our procedures. If you are going to be more that 5 minutes with our staff, please wear face masks to protect yourself and KingsWellies Staff. Always socially distance please. Thank you. Many thanks to all who contributed to our Covid-19 Consultation. We received lots of very positive and constructive feedback which we have implemented within the nursery environment. If you have any additional suggestions for us, please don’t hesitate to give us your feedback.
