COVID-19 Childcare Provision Update

Kiddi Caru - 26th March 2020

Kiddi Caru Day Nurseries Group has a unique role to play during this time and our duty and focus is to protect the health and well-being of our customers and staff, whilst supporting those critical workers on the front line.

We have made the decision to temporarily close some of our nurseries from tonight (Tuesday 24th March). A small number of nurseries will remain open and become ‘hub’ nurseries for the area. Families from those nurseries that are closing, will be welcomed at the ‘hub’ nurseries listed below.

If there is not a ‘hub’ nursery open in your area but you still require childcare, we would ask you to contact your local authority directly and they will be able to assist you.
