Covid – 19 Update Phased Re-Opening of Magna Minors


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Further to Government instructions, we are re-opening the Pre-School for all children aged 3 & 4 years who are currently in receipt of 3 & 4 year old early years entitlement. (You will be informed if your child is in this category)

As this is a phased response to protect our children, staff and parents, we will re-open on Monday 1st June 2020 between the hours of 9.00 am and 3.00 pm. The kitchen facilities will remain closed, so we politely ask that you provide a packed lunch and water bottle (both labelled with your child’s name).  We will remain open until the end of the Summer Term, this being Friday 17th July 2020.

May we also request that only one parent brings/collects their child, who will be met at the main Pre-School door by their key worker. Parents will not be allowed to enter the Pre-School’s main area,  and are politely asked to observe the 2m distancing guides in the corridor.

The Nursery and Pre-School will be closed between Monday 20th July 2020 and Friday 14th August 2020.

This will give us time to address the layout of the nursery/pre-school, enable groups to be re-organised,  and staff who are currently shielding or self isolating to be reintroduced to the team.

The Nursery and Pre-School will re-open to all children,  operating at our normal times of 8.00 am until 6.00 pm, with the re-opening of our kitchen facilities as from Monday 17th August 2020.

We appreciate the difficulties that everyone is facing at this time,  and thank you for your support in helping us to help you access an early years provision that will be operating within a changed environment,  but one that will still be exciting for your children’s learning together with being mindful of the safety issues around the Coronavirus pandemic.

As government guidance is changing with the impact of the coronavirus on a daily basis,  we will keep our parents/guardians updated if there are any changes to this information.

Kind regards

The Team at Magna Minors Nursery and Pre-School
