          Head of Centre Welcome

I feel honoured to lead Norcot Early Years Centre.  Working alongside our dedicated and skilled staff and supportive government body, it is a privilege to care for our delightful children.  I want children to embrace their life at Norcot and prepare themselves for their next stage in their educational journey.  I want them to leave Norcot with memories they will cherish.


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic there are now certain controls in place at the Nursery, in line with guidance from the Government, Health Authority and Local Authority, in order to help keep our children, parents and staff safe.  Thank you to all Parents, Staff, Children and Governors for continuing to adhere to these measures and for your ongoing support during this troubling and ever-changing time.


We appreciate that these are still very uncertain times and that people will still have many anxieties and concerns.  We are still here for you and if you would like a listening ear, need any support or need signposting to any services then please do call us on the Meadowside office number 0118 9375577 or on Waterside Day Care number 0118 9375677.

We have been made aware that there are several schools in the local area that have had to ask pupils to self isolate after positive cases of COVID-19.  If you have children that have been asked to self isolate please do keep them at home and do not bring them to the Centre at drop off/pick up times.


Please could we remind all parents/carers not to bring their children into nursery if they have a high temperature, continuous cough or loss of smell/taste.  The Delta variant also shows the symptoms of a common cold/hayfever e.g runny nose, headache and sore throat.  If you or your child has any of these symptoms please do not come into the Centre and please book and take a PCR test ASAP.  Please remember to notify us if you have taken a test and when you get the results.


Although it is hot and wearing a mask at pick up/drop off times may be uncomfortable please can you continue to do this (if you are not exempt) to keep our Norcot community as safe as possible.


Thank you for your continued support.

Lateral Flow Testing - Why you should get tested regularly

About 1 in 3 people with COVID-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others.

Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.

Anyone who does not have symptoms can now get regular rapid lateral flow tests to check for COVID-19.
