Heat Alert

15th July 2022

We are heading to an even hotter period on Monday and Tuesday and want to reassure you that we are doing all that we can to help keep the children feeling cool and stay protected from the sun, here are some of the ways we are doing this:

*lots of water play

*outdoor play in the Woodland garden where its cooler and plenty of shade

*in the classroom the blinds are down, and the fans are on

*plenty of cold drinks on offer continuously

*preventing games and play that make them hot and sticky- such as running, chasing, and encouraging more slower paced, games and activities.

*sunscreen applied during the day for those attending full days

*sunhats worn whenever outside


Ways you can help your child keep cool at nursery:

*dress them in light, loose clothing

*sunscreen applied before attending nursery

*ice block/freeze drinks or yoghurts to keep their lunch cool

*provide sunhat
