Covid - 19


Covid - 19 brought with it challenging times for many of us. Throughout Lockdown we stayed in touch with parents and children through our Facebook page and e-mails.

On this page you will find links to our Covid-19 Policy and Pandemic Policy and the activity grids that we sent out to parents.  We have also added a Covid-19 Quick Guide for parents / Carers, so they are able to check their children's symptoms.

We regularly check the Covid Guidance from the government and Wiltshire County Council, using this to ensure the safety of children and staff who use our setting.  Through regular hand washing, cleaning / washing of equipment and spending time outside in our play area or in the woods (either at Forest School, The Family Tree or on discovery walks) we think we have the balance right.

For us it is essential that children have a home from home space that they can play in, where there are no social distancing rules. Being able to have a cuddle or a hand to hold when feeling sad or they need a little reassurance is essential for this age group.

Transition to Pips 

We welcome parents and their children into Pips for transition visits and are happy to work with parents to produce a smooth transition for their child/ren.  However, with COVID19 in mind we ask parents to wear face coverings when visiting and to take a Lateral Flow Test if they are planning on staying for a length of time.

When you arrive at Chirton please ring and we will come and let you in.
