Coronavirus (COVID-19)

At Little Pumpkins Nursery, it is our duty to ensure we take Health and Safety seriously. In light of the current Coronavirus pandemic we have put together some advice and information which we hope you will find useful. 

We as a nursery are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will continue to update on new developments. 

Advice for Parents

Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.

Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done.

Please look at the image to the left for some advice to help:
