During this uncertain time, we want to provide our Customers with reassurance and support. We’ve collected the latest UK Government advice and resources to help you stay informed and keep parents happy.

New measures to protect businesses are being announced constantly, which have been set out by Chancellor, Rishi Sunak. These include:
Our platform will remain up and running and most importantly, we will be innovating. You will see lots of new features and released over the upcoming weeks and months providing you with a little bit of good news in this difficult time.
Activity at Home Sheets.
These can be EYFS focused or simply something spontaneous. We have a few examples to download on our Corona Resource Centre.
Parents can also use our Parent App to respond & show you how they’ve got on at home. Parents can add photos & descriptions meaning there is no reason why a child’s learning journey needs to go on pause.
Lots of nurseries are providing families with video links through this feature. One of our Customers is carrying out an online music and movement class every morning for each age group in the nursery. This allows children to keep active and in communication with their key persons.
Latest News and Guidance
Updates can be sent to families but also staff. You can send the latest news and guidelines to keep everyone informed. No need to worry about accidentality missing someone off of your list as Blossom created your Mailing List automatically.
Whilst many nurseries and staff have downtime, now is a great opportunity to perfect our observation writing.
Lots of nurseries have created a Demo Child for Practitioners to practice and improve their Observation & Assessment writing.
Our Feedback Feature allows Practitioner to write real observations and assessments with the ability for a senior or manager to provide feedback or appreve. This means that observations can still br written and completed whilst being remote.
We all want to keep up to date and organised but sometime in a busy nursery this feel impossible. Now is the time to cleanse and update your Blossom Data.
The progress wheel will show you how much information there is to complete.You can ensure all of the contact information is there and up to date, confirm room moves and session sets for when you return.
Going through your existing settings for nursery information, sessions, default room moves and reviewing authorised devices is a smart idea to make sure that the system is running the way it should be.
Finance users can update any discounts, consumables and invoice settings, but this is a good time to start setting it up if you don’t use finance!
We’ve been working with the talented members of staff at our own nurseries to generate as many home activities as we can for you. These can be sent out to parents via the Blossom App or shared in any other way to keep the children entertained! You can download the PDFs below to get started!
The DfE has also released some good resources for correct hand washing for children.
