This week Little Bears in Wanstead Village, Little Bears on Wanstead Green, Little Bears in East Village and Little Bears in Elephant Central all reopened their doors to the first phase of children returning after the stricter phases of lockdown. An exciting time for our team, local parents and children alike. Although, we’ve put some new measures in place to ensure safety we’re enjoying getting back to a bit of normality. We’ve all enjoyed getting up to our usual playtime activities and have added some news ones along the way. This lovely ‘thank you’ to key workers was completed by our Little Bears in East Village.

All of the Little Bears staff are now looking forward to welcoming the next group of children to join us on June 15th.

Janette and Shevonne, in East Village, also received some lovely feedback from parents, to say thank you for all the work that had been done to welcome the children back to nursery.

It has been lovely to hear about excited Little Bears all eager to get to us every morning, and lovely to hear that our parents feel really comfortable with how seriously we are taking the health and safety aspects of this new way of life.

For parents still looking after little ones at home we have a number of resources available on our blog to help them occupied, along with some new ideas from the team at Community Playthings.
