Dear Parents and Carers

Pre-school has been up and running for a couple of weeks now. Everything has gone very smoothly and the children have been enjoying lots of activities and visiting the community garden.

As of Monday 15th June, we will be open on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday for all-day sessions, 9am - 3pm (including lunchtime)

If your child is attending school in September and you would like them to attend, please contact the team on either info@stevalpreschool.co.uk or on Pre-school Facebook messenger.

As always we will be continually reviewing and assessing the current situation and taking advice from the government and Cornwall Council.

Thank you for your continued support, take care and stay safe.

Dear parents and carers

We're happy to be back welcoming those little smiley faces through our doors again.

Here's just another quick update from us regarding how we are operating at present:

Children Attending Other Settings

Unfortunately, at this time we cannot accept children who are currently attending other settings as well as Pre-school. This is to reduce mixing and risk as much as possible.

Children Displaying COVID-19 Symptoms

As mentioned previously if your child presents any symptoms of COVID-19, please isolate as per the government's guidelines. Please also let us know immediately and seek testing to confirm. You can arrange testing by visiting NHS.UK or contacting NHS 119 via telephone.

If a child or adult from our setting tests positive for the virus, families will be notified and pre-school will close for deep cleaning. Members of staff/children who were in attendance will be expected to self-isolate as per government advice.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on info@stevalpreschool.co.uk or on Pre-school Facebook messenger.

Take care,

Rachael Richards

Dear Parents and Carers,

Just an update on our last letter, we are hoping to reopen on Wednesday 3rd June, this will give the team time to prepare the Pre-school for the children. Obviously this is subject to any changes made by the government/ Cornwall Council.

The team have been putting together lots of fun activities for the children to do and will be spending lots of the time outside taking full advantage of the wonderful open spaces we have around us. With this in mind, please can all children have sunscreen applied each day before coming into Pre-school.

I also wanted to clarify what PPE you may see the team using while around others. At least in the initial stages, you might see the team wearing basic disposable gloves, and we have been very lucky to have some pretty, colourful face masks made for us. Hopefully, this will look less clinical to the children.

We are opening at first for morning and afternoon sessions, for the children and team to adjust to the changes. This will be reviewed on a daily basis and we hope to open for full days as soon as possible.

If at any point you wish your child to start back, please contact us on info@stevalpreschool.co.uk or on Pre-school Facebook messenger and we will do our very best to accommodate you. This also applies if you have any questions or concerns, we completely understand that this is a worrying time and for some a difficult decision to make. Please be reassured that we will do everything we can to make the transition as easy as possible, and Pre-school to be the fun and safe place it always has been.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your very kind comments of support. This is an unprecedented time but I know, with the St Eval Pre-school family, we’ve got this!!

Take care and stay safe,

Rachael Richards
