Play

Softplay centres must remain closed, (subject to review), following the relevant guidance. This includes soft play areas in other settings such as cafes. Soft play equipment and sensory rooms should not be used in the meantime.

All toys and equipment that children access during indoor activities should be cleaned when groups of children change – e.g. between sessions and at the end of the day or in the morning before the session begins using standard detergent and disinfectant that are active against viruses and bacteria.

Soft toys should also be removed or washed after use by each child/cohort.

Where possible, outdoor play should be encouraged, following the COVID19 Play Scotland Guidelines.
