I have been working since the 1st April.
It has been quite strange not working with the usual people I would see day-to-day. But with the staff who have also continued to work, we have built stronger relationships and worked hard together as a team to provide a safe environment for the children of the frontline workers.
To protect everyone’s safety at nursery we have had to adapt some things like no water play and sand play. We are cleaning more regularly than normal, not allowing parents or guardians into the setting and collecting children from the front door, plus washing hands more regularly.
I have enjoyed working throughout this time because it has allowed me to work with new children and staff from our different settings and it has allowed me to become more confident within myself. I was also able to still work with my assessor via phone calls, and complete the final elements to my Level 2 Apprenticeship on time.
