Delighted to have our first week with all our children back in Bright Sparks. My goodness the week flew and for some it was like they were never away. Lots of funny stories so no secrets when they come to Bright Sparks guys !! We hear it all and keeps us entertained .... thank you so much for the co operation of dropping children and collecting. It is working well for the moment, As you know we are starting our " new room ". Unfortunately it was delayed starting due to Covid Restrictions but we are now on track and fingers crossed we will get cracking on. Kelly Carpentry are onsite and will be working away for the duration of the summer. It wont affect our day to day running of Bright Sparks as our nursery for the summer weeks has moved to another room. We will have an area out the back not available to us for the summer but thankfully its fenced off and does not affect us too much, as we are all in our own play areas. The reopening of childcare has been incredible and a huge team commitment at all times. Our staff are super and as you can imagine constant cleaning and sterilising of different equipment is necessary to ensure the readiness of the play areas each day. We ask that children are collected each day by 5.30pm. For a lot of the children after their first week back they may be extra tired from the routine and being back at creche again. Certainly parents are finding the sleep patterns are returning this week too. We are monitoring closely all activities of daily living for children and reporting back as necessary to our officials. If you need to contact us please do so via the childpaths or by email. We will be sorting the school uniforms over the next week for ECCE Classes for September. We will confirm details next week. Uniforms are not compulsory but are available. They will be comfy for the children and easy for toileting ! They are like the ONeill tracksuits so very quick to dry after washing. All tracksuits will have the childs name on them too so no gear will be mixed up ! So more details on price and colour next week. Again we thank you for your co operation at all times.
Dear parents, as you all know we are preparing to re-open on June 29th. We are delighted for parents that childcare is being prioritised. Our staff are back on Monday 15th and we will be preparing our rooms, we are really looking forward to getting back to our new normal. A lot of our policies will remain as per Health and Safety and we will as always maintain our very highest hygiene standards. At present we are currently looking at our play and interaction activities that will be our priority on return as children have been apart for so long. We will be taking every necessary steps to resume to normal play and fun and children will enjoy being back together. One of our main priorities for the summer will be regaining the positivity of play for all ages. The National Childcare Scheme has now re-opened for applications, you can contact the parent helpline on 01/9068530 for more details. We look forward to welcoming back all our families on the 29th June, if you have any queries please email Claire/Helena on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 025/86799 or 086/2653839.
Minister Zappone informed us today that creches will reopen on June 29th. The guidelines will be made clear in the coming days and we certainly hope that we at Bright Sparks will be in a position to comply with the requirements for the health and safety of all concerned. We will keep you posted and have a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend everyone xxxx
