Bright Start Day Care

Home Page


In March 2020 things diid not go as planned 

We were all told to stay at home, make sure we wash our hands

We weren't allowed to see our friends, we couldn't go to school

We couldn't go to the park, it wasn't really cool

Our parents stayed with us at home. We learned to fill the day 

To learn together, to laugh together and most of all to play 

Soon the weeks turned into months, but finally it passed 

Everything was normal and we could go outside at last 




On Tuesday 2nd June, Bright Start Day Care were happy to open back their doors to their families. Our main priority was the health and well-being for our children and staff as well as reassuring parents. Working within the government and NHS guidelines we have adapted our settings. 


What safety measures have we put into place?

  • Social distancing is adhered to when dropping./picking up children (no parents are allowed inside the nursery)
  • Children will play and eat within their age group  remain with their key person throughout the day  
  • Inside the nursery we have divided the room into age groups allowing children and staff to social distance
  • In the outdoor area we have all divided the areas into age groups
  • Throughout the day frequently cleaning and disinfecting objects and surfaces that are touched regularly e.g. toys/books/door handles/light switches
  • PPE equipment does not have to be worn in the nursery except our usual practice of changing nappies/dealing with bodily fluids/serving lunches
  • No visitors are allowed on site 
  • Show arounds are conducted by appointment - please call the nursery




What happens if a child or member of staff become ill during the day?

If a child becomes unwell with a new continuous cough or a high temperature (37.8  degrees), the child will be isolated  with a member of staff wearing PPE in a ventilated designated room away from the rest of the children until the parent arrives 

If a staff member becomes unwell with a new continuous cough or a high temperature (37.8) the staff member will be sent home.. The management team will contact the Public Health Authority 


A deep clean will be enforced on the nursery setting/which may result in the setting closing.


What happens if there is another spike in Covid19?

The nursery will close with immediate effect 

A deep clean will take place 


Fees will be charged unless the nursery is closed
