Please find attached a letter regarding the extension to operating times following the 'R' rate increase.
A statement prepared by Councillor Galloway, lead member for Children’s Services, supported by Dr Helen Lowey, Director of Public Health and Bernie Brown, Director of People has been issued to all early years providers.
The letter aims to provide assurances that you will be supported in the decisions you make as Owner/Managers about your individual setting, supported by your risk assessments. A copy of the statement can be found here.
We do hope that this will help you make the right decisions for your own provision, prioritising the safety of staff and pupils at this very difficult and worrying time.
