Shapes Day Nursery

Welcome to Shapes Day Nursery





To Parents/Carers,


I would like to inform you all that, following the Government guidance on the phased reopening of schools and early years providers, we plan to reopen the nursery for the children who are in Pre-School and Nursery rooms at Reigate and Epsom from Monday 15th June 2020. All children who attend our Banstead nursery are welcome back from Monday 15th June 2020.


This will then be reviewed by 30th June 2020 and I will plan the next phased return, if it is safe to do so.  We hope to invite back all the children who are in Toddlers and Babies, who wish to return before September, from Monday 6th July 2020.


We will be operating on reduced opening hours temporarily to enable us to accommodate vigorous cleaning routines. This will be 7.30am – 4.30pm, however please note the staggered drop off and collection times as per the operational procedure attached.


I would like to confirm once your child returns to the nursery, the terms and conditions of your contract and all fees will be re-instated. Any parents who choose for their child not to return before the 31st August 2020 will not be charged fees until 1st September 2020.


Thank you for completing all your questionnaires - myself and the management team have collated all the information and created a COVID-19 operational procedure, which you will find attached, outlining how we plan to implement strategies to create as safe an environment for the children and staff as possible. Please ensure you read through these and understand how we can open the nursery as the safety of the children and staff is paramount.


There are a number of things parents can do to help us make the arrangements set out in our operational plan effective, including adhering to the correct arrival and departure times, not bringing toys to the nursery and keeping children who are showing symptoms of coronavirus away from the nursery. Please see the following for more information:


I would like to reassure you all that all the steps we have put in place in line with the Government guidance does ensure that even though we cannot social distance ourselves from the children in our care, we can all work together to minimise the risks to enable us all to move on as safely as we can.


If you do have any further questions, then please do email me. 


Many thanks,


Sue Richards
