Re-Opening your Setting useful resources from Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs

Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has developed some useful resources and guides to support Out of School Childcare Clubs to plan and re-open following the COVID-19 lockdown.

We understand your concerns and nervousness regarding opening your setting, the overriding priority is to keep children, staff and parents/carers safe. We hope these resources will support you in thinking about the measures that need to be put into place prior to your setting opening. Please note that all templates should be amended for your specific circumstances, and that you will need to ensure that you keep them updated with any future changes to guidance. We will be keeping member clubs informed of any changes to guidance via email.  

Welsh Government Guidance for the Childcare Sector on social distancing can be found here

Are you planning on asking your parents when they are going to use your setting? We have developed a parent questionnaire for you, so you can ascertain potential places take up when planning to re-open.  

You will need a policy to address how you will be preparing to re-open, and addressing changes to key policies and procedures whilst social distancing guidelines are in place. This policy will help you to consider the actions required prior to re-opening, as well as your day to day practice. We have created a template Re-Opening Following Temporary Closure (COVID-19) Policy which is available here
