In the case of extremely adverse weather conditions it is possible that the nursery may be forced to close. We do have an emergency plan, which we must follow in the first instance but if after following that we cannot still operate safely, we may be forced to close for a day. Such actions will only be taken in extreme circumstances and in the interests of safety.

Early morning announcements concerning any closure will be made by text messages, e-mail and by recorded greeting on the nursery’s answer phone.

Should the nursery close down during the day due to extreme weather or an unforeseen emergency, the nursery manager or appionted staff will telephone parents and inform them of the arrangements.

Once again, our nursery policy is to remain open whenever possible but a closure may be deemed unavoidable sometimes.
