Information about Coronavirus

Update: 24/03/2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are deeply sorry to advise that from 6pm this evening Tuesday 24th March 2020 Dovedale Nursery will be closing until further notice. We have endeavoured to follow Government directives to support children of key workers, but in the interests of safety we have no option but to close our buildings. Our parent company Chelmsford College is also closing and therefore the necessary infrastructure for us to continue operating will no longer be available.

We would like to thank all our families for the support you have shown us throughout the past few weeks which has been invaluable. If you are a key worker who requires emergency childcare please can you contact the early years team at Essex County Council by emailing early.years@essex.gov.uk

We will keep you updated and will post further updates when needed via tapestry and our website.

Thank you for all your understanding and to all our families please stay safe. Read More
