Health, Wellbeing and Safety

Links Duns has remained open throughout the COVID19 pandemic, and has complied strictly with government guidelines. We have focused on children's health and wellbeing, making children comfortable, reading stories, spending time outdoors in the garden and going for walks, and having fun. 


COVID operational safety guidelines are in place including new risk assessments, infection control procedures, new cleaning schedules and new procedures for drop off and pick up. These are all working well.  We want to reassure you that we are taking every step to ensure that your children are safe and well whilst still enjoying nurturing and stimulating play and learning experiences.

If you have any concerns or questions, please do let us know.
