Kinder Castle nursery is still open as usual for those workers playing a critical role in the fight against the coronavirus

Operating as normal, the nursery’s approach to the pandemic crisis has been focused on ensuring its children and families stay calm, positive and settled during these difficult times.

A key activity they’ve been doing is working with children to create rainbow pictures to share across the windows of the nursery. To ensure all children are included, those who are at home are doing their own rainbow handprints and sharing these alongside letters with their Kinder Castle friends to reassure them that they’re safe and well and looking forward to seeing them again.

Lucy Craig, owner of Kinder Castle, said: “The rainbow theme is just one of the many activities we are doing to keep our spirits high and look after the wellbeing of our staff, children and their families.

“We want to ensure the Kinder family and its strong ethos of putting children first shines through. It’s a prolonged period that can be unsettling, worrying and life changing to many. Our goal is to make certain something remains consistent and a setting like ours is here for our local community in this time of great need.”

Kinder Castle is open five days a week, 7.30am-6pm, for families who need childcare during this period, where their children cannot stay at home, who are helping the region fight against the huge challenges COVID-19 presents.

Lucy continued: “If anyone on the frontline in any way requires childcare, please do get in touch. We are open, we are here for you and we want to help as much as we can.”

Because of the business model the nursery follows, it’s able to provide a very flexible offering to those parents who need ongoing or urgent childcare.
