COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Updates 

We will continue to be safe and have a few guidelines we will still be following to ensure all children, staff and families can stay safe. Please call us if you have any questions. This includes: 

  • Remain outside the nursery building and follow social distancing guidelines, The choice of a face mask is optional but still preferred. 

  • All children and staff will wash their hands thoroughly upon arrival and throughout the day 

  • Items will be cleaned when necessary and have a deep clean day every week. 

  • If your child has COVID-19 or displays symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature, a new and persistent cough and change of taste or smell) do not attend the setting and inform us immediately. Please do not send your child to nursery if they have had Calpol as this can mask symptoms. 

  • Be aware and adhere to the latest advice from the Foreign Office regarding self-isolating if returning from abroad or specific ‘hot spot’ areas in the United Kingdom.  

Oaklea have risk assessed each setting individually and are happy to share these assessments with parents on request. We understand that updating these plans and monitoring their effectiveness will become part of our day to day running.

ST Johns Ofsted Report

Working Together

At Oaklea, we have a set of information and support leaflets, covering a range of matters from potty training to bereavement and many other issues that parents and families have found helpful.  These are freely available at each setting, just ask if you can't see them on display!

Involvement in the nursery

We believe that a parent’s involvement in nursery life enriches a child’s experience and we therefore invite and encourage parents and carers to become actively involved, from sharing particular talents, reading a story (particularly in a different home language) to simply joining us on our different fun days and events.

Each setting has a closed Parent group on our Facebook pages - search Friends of Oaklea Montessori.


We are strengthening our communications with parents by using an online tool to share moments from your child's day and their development. How lovely is it to see what your child is up to when you are at work? Your child's key person will also upload assessments after Celebration Evenings twice a year and for Integrated Reviews for 2 year olds. Using the ParentZone website or app (available for iOS and Android), parents can access photographs and videos of their child, as well as use convenient payment tools. Please do ask us for details on how the sign up process works. We are happy to guide you where we can!

Open door Policy

All of our settings operate an open door policy with regards to concerns from parents. We are committed to discuss and work together to resolve any problems or worries about a child or the care they receive. 

If a parent would like to discuss their child, it may be best to speak to their key person in the first instance. Any other issues regarding the nursery should be brought to the attention of the setting Manager, who can organise a meeting to discuss. If the parent is unhappy with the outcome or feels it has not been resolved, they should follow the complaints procedure. At Oaklea we hope to work together to sort any concerns (no matter how small!), pop in and see us.
