1st June 2020
We welcomed back some of our school leavers.
The nursery was a little bit different with our "bubble" group areas due to COVID-19 and social distancing.
Daisy's Mum - I feel that Daisy has settled into her new bubble environment extremely well! She leaves nursery everyday happy and excited to return! She understands fully why she is in a bubble group and that she can’t mix with other children etc. The videos and clear information you send us before re-opening helped us as parents to feel confident in her return and Daisy enjoyed being able to see the nursery Layout and I read the emails to her so she could take in some of the changes and be prepared for the new setting.
Keeping in contact during lockdown was also a really lovely idea. Pick up and drop off has worked brilliantly having the 5 minutes in between has made it run so smoothly and avoided the crowded drop off at the door situation. And if you do happen to bump into another parent or child you have time to say a brief hello etc but can’t stand and chat for too long or you will miss your drop off time which I think is a good thing so no one hanging around and if other people feel uncomfortable having to pass a group chatting this has helped avoid this situation.
We really appreciate all the hard work and planning that has gone into you re-opening cygnets! We know a few friends who’s nurseries have not opened and are not sure when they will be!
We’re so happy Daisy got to return!!! She really loves being at Cygnets and we’re so glad she got to finish her final chapter with you all! You really all have given her such an amazing start into her school life! And we can’t thank you enough for that!
Nancy's Mum - A few of my friends have been disappointed with their child’s nursery with full closure as that were unable to execute bubbles so I know I’ve said it before but I am so grateful that you guys have pulled it off and its working, Nancy is just as happy and settled as she was before the pandemic.
Rachel's Mum - I went round and round in circles deciding if it was right choice to send Rachel back to nursery but from day one seeing the children playing outside in their bubbles and having so much fun I knew I had 100% made the right decision & literally skipped away knowing she was safe and happy.Th e staggered drop off and picks ups worked really well, the pre sent videos of the new inside and outside bubble set up was a great idea so Rachel knew what to expect so she wasn’t fazed at all just excited to be back and settled in instantly.
I can’t recommend Cygnets enough
