Now is a huge time for change and this can be very unsettling and worrying and everyone approaches it in different ways.
At Muck Pups this week we have made the change from being closed to reopening again. For the time being it is for those key-worker's children who need childcare and have sometimes found it difficult while we have been closed. For many this has been a lifeline and although we know some of you are not ready yet we want to reassure you that you and your children are still very much part of our Mucky Pups family and understand that a return for you yet is just to soon.
We have had to change the way we work and our daily routine to make sure that everything is as safe as possible, while still keeping it familiar and calm for those children returning. Those returning have embraced it and we have loved seeing them each day. The staff at nursery have been putting photo's and post on Facebook to let you and your children see your friends. Please have a look at our information about how we have done this here
We have welcomed some new brothers to our family as we can now take one year old children. We have started with siblings to help ease the transition back to nursery and keep siblings together.It has also enabled mums and dad's to return to work knowing their children are in one place to help ease their transition back to work while only coping with one setting and ease the concerns of infection from multiple settings. We are continuing this in September for those children who are already registered and then from January expanding the nursery to include more children.
We have also begin the process of preparing for our Chihuahuas and Dalmatians to start school and although it is uncertain when this will be and how this will look we do know that at some point in the future these children will be starting school and taking the next big step in their learning journey. We have been liaising closely with schools; chatting to your child's new teachers and will continue to work with them sending key-worker reports and Capture wheels for them to see. I know many of you have also begun this process at home too.
We will continue to put home learning ideas on Facebook and Twitter and be here for all of you no matter where you are!1
