Starting Nursery is an exciting time for children, with a chance to meet new friends and a time to have lots of great adventures. We also understand that it is a time of change for children and families and we want to make your child's first few days and weeks at Nursery, as smooth as possible. In order for us to achieve this we offer stay and play session as well as home visits to ensure your children are as prepared as possible and ready to enjoy their time with us.
If you choose to add your child's name to our waiting list, which you can do any time after their first birthday, we will ask you for to fill in an application form. This will add your child to the waiting list, we will invite you to a parents meeting prior to your child starting Nursery with us. If space is available within Nursery, your child can start attending as soon as they are three. However, if at the time of your child's third birthday, Nursery is full and we are unable to offer them a place straight away, their name will remain on the waiting list until space becomes available. This may be the term of their third birthday. Our intakes are September, January and April. We offer places to children in date of birth order, meaning that children who are eligible for the Government's free 15 hours Nursery education, can access it as soon as possible after their third birthday.If you have any questions, please do contact us. It is important that we are able to contact you about potential places for your child, and would therefore ask that if you move house or change your contact telephone number, that you let us know so that we can amend our records.
