Wash Hands at Hambledon Nursery

Coronavirus Update

Hambledon Nursery school is currently operating under our carefully considered ‘System of Controls’ risk assessment, which is in place in order to maintain the very highest levels of safety and protection during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Visits to the nursery at this time are required to be restricted to those that are absolutely necessary, this includes any necessary support on site such as visits for SEND therapies. Prospective parents may also visit the nursery in person, but out of hours where this is possible. We will work with parents to ensure that we are still able to offer settling in sessions for new admissions in line with the current government guidance with these sessions taking place in part using our outside space where at all possible.

We regard being able to visit our beautiful setting as being crucial in order to help prospective parents make their all-important decision about which early years provider to choose. Parents will have an opportunity to view the wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces, to ask questions of the head teacher, Kate Walford and will have access to ‘a virtual’ tour of the nursery school through viewing the images of our high quality provision displayed within our building itself. We hope that you will get a real feel for the fun, joy and laughter that presides within the nursery now as it does always.

Please contact the nursery on (01428) 684892 if you wish to arrange a ‘walk through’ visit or email office@hambledonnurseryschool.co.uk if you wish to ask any further questions about how to register your interest with us at this exceptional time.

The nursery has conducted a full and comprehensive protective measures and system of controls risk assessment, which is available upon request and is updated to reflect the latest government guidelines and strictest safety measures to help protect children, staff and parents during the coronavirus pandemic.

At Hambledon Nursery School we recognise that there is a deep uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak which is being felt far and wide and impacts on children, parents and practitioners. We have prioritised taking all necessary steps to ensure that children feel safe and secure at this time, in order to then learn and develop. As a nursery we are focusing on children’s well-being, confidence and friendships through our highly effective and nurturing relationships with both our children and their families.

We have created this handwashing video to help children learn to wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds as recommended.

Helping Children to Wash Their Hands

The actions depicted in this picture can be compared to the movements of animals in order to help children to understand how to wash their hands well, for example, making hands into a hedgehog shape (number 2), a snail curled up in a shell (number 4), holding onto your butterfly wings (number 5) or making a caterpillar wriggling on a leaf (number 6).
