We’re delighted that, over the summer, many of you have been enjoying a rather more “normal” way of childminding - we know that you have all been making the most of the increased opportunities to get out and about, socialise with your community and welcome new families into your homes.

Unfortunately, though, Covid-19 is still a daily issue for us all. The government has now issued new guidance, specifically for childminders, on what to do if someone in your home is self-isolating. These are the two main points to familiarise yourself with:

1. If someone in your household is self-isolating because they are a close contact of a positive case, but does not have any symptoms of Covid 19, and is not in direct contact with the children in your setting, you CAN keep your setting open.

2. If someone in your household is self-isolating with symptoms or a confirmed case of Covid 19, you CANNOT keep your setting open.

The full release from the government can be found here, including information on school pick-ups and the possibility of childminding on another premises. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
