Health, Wellbeing and Safety

Links Nursery has remained open throughout the COVID19 pandemic, during lockdown for the children of keyworker parents and afterwards for all children. Our focus has been on children's health and wellbeing, and making sure they are are happy and comfortable. We have been supporting children through games, stories, outdoors play in the garden, beach and river visits and outdoors walks. 

COVID operational safety guidelines are in place and working well. Health and safety have always been important for the care of our children but have assumed even more importance during the pandemic. We want to reassure you that we are taking every step to ensure that your children remain safe and well whilst still enjoying nurturing and stimulating play and learning experiences.

If you have any concerns or questions, please do let us know.
