Today has been an extremely emotional day for everyone as we temporarily closed our utterly amazing Little Owls nurseries and Hoots after school clubs.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to our absolutely amazing staff teams who have worked tirelessly this week in preparing and filming over 180 videos of our staff teams and activities for our parents to do at home with their children during this period.These will all be shared with our families on our brand new little owls (closed parents facebook page) over the next 12 weeks.
The support, thanks, understanding and generosity of our fabulous parents and families has been overwhelming so thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your total support with our decision to close and protect our staff and families.
Keep healthy, stay at home and look after all of our Little Owls,we miss you already.

The poem below makes a lovely bedtime story so please share this with your children tonight.
“The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World”
The world it got so busy,
There were people all around.
They left their germs behind them;
In the air and on the ground.
These germs grew bigger and stronger.
They wanted to come and stay.
They didn’t want to hurt anyone –
They just really wanted to play.
Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,
Or tickled your throat or your nose.
They could make you cough and sneeze
And make your face as red as a rose.
And so these germs took over.
They started to make people ill,
And with every cough we coughed
More and more germs would spill.
All the queens and kings had a meeting.
“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.
And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,
Just so these germs couldn’t spread.
We couldn’t go to cinemas
Or restaurants for our tea.
There was no football or parties,
The world got as quiet as can be.
The kids stopped going to school,
The mums and dads went to work less.
Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush
Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!
Dads started teaching the sums,
Big brothers played with us more,
Mums were in charge of homework
And we read and played jigsaws galore!
The whole world was washing their hands
And building super toilet roll forts!
Outside was quiet and peaceful,
Now home was the place for all sports.
So we played in the world that was home
And our days filled up with fun and love,
And the germs they grew smaller and smaller
And the sun watched from up above.
Then one morning the sun woke up early,
She smiled and stretched her beams wide.
The world had been fully spring cleaned,
It was time to go back outside!
We opened our doors oh so slowly
And breathed in the clean and fresh air.
We promised that forever and always
Of this beautiful world we’d take care!
