Giraffe Re-opening 29 June, Parent Update
We are pleased to advise that Minister Zappone has expanded the re-opening of childcare services on 29 June to include all parents who require full day childcare and who were registered with Giraffe prior to our closure in March.
We are working hard behind the scenes to plan and prepare the centre so that it will be as seamless as possible for all our returning children. As you will expect, there will be enhanced cleaning protocols within our centre and staff will need to observe social distancing measures. However our Government guidance is that children will not have to social distance within their own care rooms. Each care room, now classed as a play pod, will be maintained as before, along with the children’s key carers. Parents will be asked to drop their child at the entrance of the centre, as we are managing adult access to the centre. As children will have been away from their centre for a number a weeks, we will be settling children back in on a staggered basis to support their transition back to creche.
We will contact you again shortly with a second parent survey in light of this new announcement and will also follow up with you when we have further detail and clarification for all our families.
We are looking forward to welcoming all our children and families back very soon.
