Urgent closure of the setting

  • Severe weather conditions

  • Insufficient staff, due to severe weather conditions

  • Insufficient staff, due to sickness

  • Heating failure

  • Premises deemed unsafe

  • Acts of terrorism

  • Notification of a closure
    Parent/carers will be notified of a closure via their online portal's message board.

    ABC Nursery, in these circumstances, will not be held responsible therefore prebooked childcare will still be charged.
