The Government has suggested that early years settings will be able to offer a 'phased' reopening from the 1st June 2020.
The go-ahead for this was confirmed on the 28th May 2020.
The DfE confirmed on the 2nd June 2020 that Community buildings can now reopen for Early Years provision.
Highwoods and St Johns Community Centre is currently planning to reopen on the 1st July following thorough safety checks of the building and satisfactory risk assessment for staff and users. We plan to reopen then as well following our own risk assessments, staff training in infection control, and review of operational policies.
Stay safe Squirrels
