Service update: Kidzone The health and wellbeing of our team members, our volunteers and the communities we support is paramount to our Leadership Team and our Board of Trustees. We are coordinating our services to ensure we continue to support vulnerable people in the community while safeguarding our team and volunteers. As an organisation that works with residents in the local area, we recognise our responsibility to keep communicating and connecting at the heart of our response to the current situation. We continually work to ensure that Kidzone is COVID safe and secure and have made some adaptions to help limit the risk of coronavirus transmission, whilst continuing to deliver our fun filled service. Based on the latest government guidance (22nd February 2021) and as we are working with limited staff availability we have to limit the capacity of our after school club of 15 children per day (Monday and Friday), with 30 children per day (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday); holiday club of 15 children per day; at the moment family time is still suspended. We will take precautions to ensure we are meeting government requirements whilst operating our Kidzone, but we also need to ask that you adhere to the following requirements: It is vitally important that anyone who may be displaying coronavirus symptoms, or living with someone who does, to not attend Kidzone. This includes children and also our staff members. If your child, or anyone else in your household, develops coronavirus symptoms as detailed below, they should not attend Kidzone unless they have tested negative for coronavirus. a high temperature a new, continuous cough a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste has displayed symptoms in the previous 7 days lives with someone who has displayed symptoms in the previous 14 days If we are concerned about a child within Kidzone who is presenting with coronavirus symptoms they will need to be collected immediately. It is also advised that parents ensure the children use only ONE childcare provider over the summer to limit the risk of transmission. We want to ensure the children have an amazing timer with us and we look forward to welcoming you all back very soon.
