Check here for regular updates on how Margaret McMillan Nursery School is responding to the Coronavirus pandemic. This will include information about closures, as well as useful tools for home learning with your child if you are self-isolating.

Margaret McMillan Nursery School will begin a partial closure from Monday 23rd March 2020. We will remain open to care for the children of Key Workers. Key Workers include those in areas such as the NHS, Social Care, Food Services, Emergency Services etc. If either of a child’s parents / carers qualify as key workers, that child will be welcome to continue attending nursery. Click here to see the government-issued list of Key workers.

Regarding nursery fees, and whether or not you will still need to pay them.

Many of you are asking questions about childcare fees and we will share what we know so far.

  • If you are a keyworker under the government’s criteria, and have been told that you are able to access childcare at Margaret McMillan, you will continue to pay fees.
  • We are not yet sure if you are expected to pay fees if you qualify but CHOOSE not to use the care.
  • If you are not able to access care because you do not qualify under the keyworker criteria, you will not be expected to pay fees.
  • Arrangements for holding fees for when children return or for refunds will be made in the new financial year.

Here are some useful tools/links that parents can use to keep their children engaged and entertained while they are out of school.
