As a provider of childcare we take health and safety seriously. In light of the current outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) we have put together some information for parents based on the official advice from Public Health England and the Department for Education. 

We are continuing to monitor the situation closely, and ask all families to follow the official advice at all times. If you have any questions in addition to the information provided on this page, please speak to the manager at your childcare setting, who will strive to help you in any way they can. 


The Current Situation at Acorn 

We have taken every step possible to prepare our nurseries and out of school clubs to continue operating, adhering to government guidelines at all times.

Our teams have been working hard to ensure our nurseries are safe and ready to welcome all of our children back.

We would like to thank all of our amazing staff, children and parents for their support during this challenging time - it's great to be open again!

Our Out of Schools Clubs at Henry Chichele unfortunately remains closed, so please contact the school if you are a key worker need any additional support for the time being. We will be liaising with the school and parents/carers about reopening these settings


Has your child tested positive? 

We have a duty to report any positive cases in our settings, and track and trace others that may have been in contact with positive cases. We therefore ask any parents/carers of children who have tested positive to complete this online form as soon as possible.
