Mary's is currently running services to support our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The teams are still available and you can contact us by email or send us a message in chat.

Pre-School - Reopening for Critical Worker Families

The Pre-school closed on the 20th March but the childcare team has been working hard to offer remote support for as many families as possible. 

Following announcements of the gradual easing of restrictions, we are now getting ready for a phased re-opening from the 1st June. We have written to every family in our setting and will be following up with further contact and information about our plans. We also want to hear from our families so we can understand your circumstances and try and take account of them in our preparations.  Please call us on 020 7704 2873 or email us at [email protected].

Whether you are planning to return on the 1st Jue or not we would like to carry on building your child’s developmental profile using our online Capture system with your help. Please make full use of your Capture account by uploading pictures, videos, comments about your child’s activities at home. Remember the information you upload will be yours long after your child left our setting so it is well worth keeping up to date. If you need support logging on, please get in touch using the above contact details. 

Play Scheme - Open for Critical Worker Families

Mary's will be operating a Play Scheme for the families of critical workers starting on Tuesday 26 May 2020 to Friday 29 May 2020. For more information visit our page on the May Half Term Play Scheme.

Community Groups - Opening

We have begun gradually to welcome back some of our user groups.  

Initially, we are only facilitating short one-off bookings alongside one regular Vaccination session run by an NHS supplier to support the COVID Response effort. We are also in conversation with our community of users about their phased return from August and September.

We will shortly be able to publish our What's On Page so watch this space!
