Information regarding keeping Sandbank Open. (View photo)

As you will have seen following today's announcement Early Years settings are to remain open. We are aware that with Primary Schools closing and worries around another lockdown many of you may choose to keep your children at home.
We want to reassure you that Nursery is NOT mandatory and you will NOT be penalised for this. If you wish to discuss this with us please phone into the Nursery.
Keep safe everyone,
From
