Will my insurance cover me if I remain open for vulnerable children and those of key workers?
If you have a setting which remains open because you are caring for vulnerable children or those of key workers (as defined in DfE guidance and Welsh Government guidance) then your insurance remains valid as you are providing childcare within guidelines set by the government.
If you have vacancies generated by children who have had to leave, then your insurance will cover you to fill those spaces vulnerable children or those of key workers (as defined in DfE guidance and Welsh Government guidance) so long as you stay within your ratios. You must also have the necessary health information on those children and have completed registration forms, child record forms and contracts as you would normally do. It would also be important to inform your local authority of the children you are caring for.
