Guidance for the safe running of organised activities for children and young people.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): organised activities for children
Parent and baby or toddler groups (under 5 years)

Parent and baby or toddler groups (under 5 years)

Capacity will be based on ability to maintain physical distancing rules and guidance on how to apply this is found here

Facilitators will also count in relation to the capacity of the venue .

Under 5s do not count to overall numbers.  These activities are permitted outdoors at Level 4 and indoors from Level 3.

Singing in groups of young children (under 8) is set out in more detail in the following section, and can be undertaken indoors or outdoors from Level 3.

Because more adults will be in the group at any one time, consideration should be given to the maximum numbers outdoors at Level 4 and indoors from Level 3 .

Siblings can also attend, where unavoidable, and should be included in calculating the maximum numbers who can attend based on the venue capacity and age.
