On Saturday 31st October the Government announced there would be a second lockdown for four weeks, as of Thursday 5th November and set to last until 2nd December 2020. In line with the government guidance, Tops Day Nurseries have pledged to remain open where possible to ensure stability and continuity for the children we care for. Following the return of children after the first national lockdown we saw an increase in children showing early signs of anxiety and disruptions to children’s development after having to be isolated for so long and so we are delighted that this time the government has recognised the Early Years as a Key Service, playing a crucial role in the development of the next generation.
For those who have made the decision to keep their child at home during the second lockdown, Tops Day Nurseries encourage you to continue engaging in activities with your child based on some of the routines we have at nursery. To support your decision for keeping your child at home, we are also offering the opportunity for parents to suspend your place. Please speak to your nursery manager for more information.
Many of our wonderful colleagues have been sharing live social media videos, activities and Zoom calls to support parents and children through this unprecedented time, so we have created this page including a huge range of activities from both Tops Day Nurseries and external websites.
These activities have been categorised under General, Communication & Language, Physical Development, Literacy & Maths, Arts Crafts & Sensory, Recipes and Parent Information.
