‘Bods and Tods’ Group
Currently Suspended due to virus…
Hope you are all well and have survived the past few months since we last met. We know it has been difficult for you all and we have missed seeing you and all the little ones, many of whom are probably not so little anymore.
Over the last couple of months we have been researching and thinking about how and when we could start up Bods & Tods again. Guidance is somewhat hazy and seems very open to interpretation. We are aware some private toddler activity groups are beginning to open – however we wanted to clarify our plans for the future, and let you know how we have come to that decision.
Whilst we are keen to get the group open again, we have to ensure it is the right thing to do. The Early Years Alliance states that “parent & toddler groups can reopen”, however it is clear that currently “they must ensure families socially distance from others”. Our little ones are used to being free to move around the hall, as are you adults and the last thing we want to do is put more stress and pressure on you by asking you to keep the little ones distanced. Added to this, guidance states face coverings must be worn, no sharing of toys, no soft toys, no singing and lots of other legislation, so for the time being regrettably Bods & Tods will not be able to reopen.
As soon as guidance changes and we can safely meet we will let you know.
We may not have everyone’s emails so if you are in contact with any other group regulars please could you let them know.
Many thanks and hopefully see you all soon.
