So my second day back at pre-school and today was the first day we were open to the children. We only had a very small number attend today as our new starters are phased in over the next couple of weeks which does mean we get to ease our way back into things.
All the children did amazingly well as for all but one of them this was their first time back at pre-school since we closed back in March. Our routines are different to when they were last with us because of COVID but they all just accepted the changes without any issue (and the parents did really well too!).
My day was focused on sorting paperwork and bits for the new starters that will be joining us over the next couple of weeks, writing a newsletter, reviewing our plans with my deputy manager and sorting the uniform order that had came yesterday.
By the end of the day I had managed to complete most of what I wanted and was able to head home in the sunshine, as opposed to the rain of this morning, and enjoy a coffee on the patio soaking up some vitamin D.
Next job though was to sort out the butchers delivery that we received today; needed to unpack it all and then split it into manageable sized portions before putting it all into the freezer. Then I did a little more pre-school admin work by posting online our latest newsletter as well as emailing it out before heading 'down the gym' with Simon.
And that was today and back to work again tomorrow.
Stay safe out there, wash your hands, keep your distance and wear a mask.
