Coronavirus Nursery Closure 

Dear parents and carers,

As you are aware, all schools, colleges and early years settings are facing extraordinary challenges at this time. We thank you for your continued support.

The statement by the education secretary states that from the end of the day Friday 20th March schools, colleges and early year’s settings are to close and will remain closed until further notice except for the children of key workers and vulnerable children, as part of the country’s ongoing response to coronavirus.

If you fall into one of the following groups, our setting will remain open for childcare to continue. If you do not fall into any group then it is important that your child does not attend until further notice.

* Children whose parents are frontline workers which may include, NHS staff, emergency service workers, teaching staff, social workers, Armed forces, highway agency traffic staff, care workers, food/supermarket workers and drivers, utility workers (Gas and electric).

* Those classed as what the state secretary describes as “vulnerable children” This is those that are under a social worker and have education, health and care plans. 

Please reply immediately if your child falls into any of these groups and you would like them to continue attending. Stating hours and days in order for us to plan supervision.

Please note that due to food shortages we will be amending our hot lunch menu for those that would still like to have them.

In the meantime, I would once again like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.


Kind regards

Karen Sayers

Easter Closure 2020

Dear parents and carers,

We hope that you are all staying safe and well.

Bright Beginnings has remained open for our keyworkers for the last two weeks. As the children attending have found alternative childcare over the Easter period, we will be closing for two weeks from Monday 6th April to Friday 17th April. This will enable us to thoroughly clean the nursery and stay safe with our families to be ready to welcome some children back on Monday 20th April.

Please remember that only children of keyworkers or vulnerable children are permitted to attend at this time, if no alternative childcare can be arranged. We are really hoping that we can welcome all of the children back soon.

If you fall into one of the following groups and would like your child to attend, please let us know if you have not already. Bright Beginnings will be open on reduced days and hours dependent on required days and times.

* Children whose parents are keyworkers which may include, NHS staff, emergency service workers, teaching staff, social workers, Armed forces, highway agency traffic staff, care workers, food/supermarket workers and drivers, utility workers (Gas and electric).

* Those classed as what the State Secretary describes as “vulnerable children” This is those that are under a social worker and have education, health and care plans. 

In the meantime, I would once again like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.


Kind regards

Karen Sayers and all the staff at Bright Beginnings
