Conifers Day Nursery will strive to achieve a caring and stimulating environment in which to leave your child. We respect that each child is unique. We aim to provide the best possible care which will help the children to develop to their full potential in line with the stated desirable outcomes laid down by the Department of Education. Our main aim is to ensure your child’s ‘early years are happy years’.
On the 20th of March 2020, the nursery made the decision that we would be temporarily closing the nursery from Monday 23rd March.
This was not an easy decision for management and directors to make as we have a huge amount of loyalty to our children and the families at the nursery.
This decision has been made due to low numbers of children attending at this time, meaning the nursery is receiving a low income and also low staffing levels due to illnesses as a result of COVID19.
The health and safety of our staff, families and children is our priority and we feel that this is the best decision to keep everyone safe.We hope that all of our families understand and continue attending our nursery when everything is back to normal. You will all be welcome with open arms.
If anyone has any queries you can email us on email@example.com, we plan to keep everyone updated throughout this hard time and once we know a date that the business can reopen we will inform our families.
We would like to thank all of our families that have been supportive since we opened the nursery doors, being a fairly new business and being hit with this challenging time has been hard so we appreciate all of the support we are getting from you all.
Stay safe everyone and we will hopefully see you soon.
Keep on learning, Conifers Day Nursery.
