Re-Opening Guidelines - Post Corona Virus Lockdown


We aim to implement current Government guidelines for COVID -19 please visit 

Please follow the rules:

  • Minimising contact with individuals who are unwell by ensuring that those who have coronavirus symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend childcare settings, schools or colleges

  • Cleaning hands more often than usual - wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with running water and soap and dry them thoroughly or use alcohol hand rub or sanitiser ensuring that all parts of the hands are covered

  • Ensuring good respiratory hygiene by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach

  • Cleaning frequently touched surfaces often using standard products, such as detergents and bleach

  • Minimising contact and mixing by altering, as much as possible, the environment (such as classroom layout) and timetables (such as staggered entry times to classes)

  • Parents & carers must wait outside the shop at all times

Face coverings or mask wearing at Mini Picassos

Wearing a face covering is now option as per the Government guidelines, we will not enforce mask wearing but we welcome it.

Drop - off and collection of children at Mini Picassos

Classes will be staggered to allow socially distanced drop-off and pick up time for children. Parents and carers should wait outside of shop, socially distanced. Do not enter the shop, please wait to be called to collect your child.

Class or group sizes

All who enter Mini Picassos will be offered hand sanitizer to lower the risk of transmission of Covid.

On leaving all will be offered the use of hand sanitizer. 

We know that, unlike older children and adults, early years and primary age children cannot be expected to remain 2 metres apart from each other and staff. In deciding to bring more children back to early years and schools, we are taking this into account. Schools should therefore work through the hierarchy of measures set out above:

  • Avoiding contact with anyone with symptoms

  • Frequent hand cleaning and good respiratory hygiene practices

  • Regular cleaning of settings

  • Minimising contact and mixing

Cleaning between sessions

Between each session we will be cleaning tables, chairs, art equipment & bathroom. We have allowed 10mins between classes for this process. 

A peddle bin has been installed in the bathroom to minimise contact. 

Paper towels are available.

Hand sanitizer is offered on arrival and on leaving to each child.

Parties at Mini Picassos

For the time being we are limiting our party sizes to 15 guests + a maximum of 15 adults. Guest numbers can be altered if there is less adult attendees. We do have a lovely garden space which guests are welcoming to use. Please contact us with any queries. 

Please if you or your child is unwell do not attend the sessions. Please contact Mini Picassos and let us know.
