COVID-19 Update - Information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Downright Special Families

 

We have taken the precautionary measure to cancel all Downright Special Friday sessions and all events until after Easter. We feel that is the best approach to take to best safeguard the children and families we work with.

 

We will also cancel any planned school visits until after Easter, at which point we will review the situation.

 

Our staff will continue to work over this period of time so you can still contact us by phone and email if you need help with anything.

 

We are also working in how we can continue to support you in some sort of way over the next few weeks so that we can all continue to keep in touch.
