Sunny Days Nursery in Dorchester and Bridport are staying open to look after more than 50 children who's parents are key workers.

The childcare provider has been running over the Easter break, and are also offering free meals to key worker's families.

Aimée Scadden works for Sunny Days.

She said:

"In the media at the moment, child care workers are starting to have that recognition as well as other key workers.

"A parent said to us we're their angels at the moment.

"We just want to give them peace of mind while their children are being cared for at Sunny Days."

Their chef is making free takeaway meals for key workers families, meaning they no longer have to worry about cooking.

The Dorchester nursery is offering free take away hot drinks and there is a family food bank in Bridport.

Sunny Days are also running online activities on their social media to keep children busy during the pandemic at home. 

The nursery say they are only letting children and staff through their security doors to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. 

They have also decontaminated their premises using a fogging machine to further reduce the risk of contamination.
