Welcome To The Greendykes Early Years Centre Website


This website was established so that we could assist parents and staff, during the COVID-19 outbreak. However, it proved so popular that we have decided to continue to use it for the timebeing.

We are please to welcome back all our children and families!

We are currently operating in compliance with level “0” COVID restrictions. This means that, unless exempt, parents still have to wear facemasks when visiting our establishment.

We continue to welcome children back to the centre with many new children and parents joining us
here at Greendykes Early Years Centre.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind parents that all adults and staff must continue to
physically distance, but we do not expect children to physically distance from their friends.

Due to the lifting of some restrictions we are now able to share the garden space with other rooms
however all adults must continue to socially distance whilst outside.

There is currently an increase in Covid infections within our school community similar to Local and
National patterns and the current situation is being monitored closely.

We would assure you that we continue to work closely with NHS Lothian and review our Health and
Safety measures in line with National and Local guidance.

Parents and carers are asked to wear face masks at drop off and pick up times this is to ensure
everyone is kept safe and to support the service going forward.

If your child is unwell please keep them at home until fully recovered. This will allow us to stop the
spread of infections through the centre.
The priority is for the centre to remain open and learning and teaching to continue.

Lastly, the Squirrel and Koala children that are here after 4pm should be collected from the main
door as all side gates will be locked for the safety and security of all still in the building.

If you require any further information please contact a Senior Member of Staff who will be able to
advise you.
