COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Updates to our Wee Nippers Community

Wee Nippers Invercargill and Wee Nippers Mosgiel are closed during the Level 4 COVID-19 Lockdown. 

We are recieving updates from the Ministry of Education (MoE) with the most up to date official information and advice for the education sector and early childhood education centres.

We will continue to follow Government and Ministry advice on when Wee Nippers can reopen. Our provisional reopen date is Thursday 23 April 2020.  Please keep an eye on your emails, StoryPark, our Facebook pages and this page for any updates.

While we are closed, we will regularly post links to online and offline fun, educational resources and activities on Facebook to keep everyone entertained and busy.  If you are trying to work from home these may make the difference!

We ask that you to follow all Ministry of Health advice to the public and the advice we have reiterated. Please consider the potential impact on the whole community of not following this advice.

If anyone living in or staying in your household contracts COVID-19 or is instructed to self-isolate, please advise your Centre Manager. It will be treated in full confidence and will assist us to follow all guidelines and advice we are being given by Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health.
