Nursery School (3-5’s)
Children can be placed on the waiting list at any time. You can do this by phoning the nursery or by talking to a member of the office staff who will make sure you have the relevant forms.
When placing your child’s name on the waiting list we invite you to come and meet the Headteacher and have a guided tour of the nursery. This gives you an opportunity to look around the nursery, ask questions and ensure that it is the right place for your child.
Free entitlement places are available the term after your child’s 3rd birthday. The cut off dates for each term are 31st August, 31st December and 31st March each year.
The 15 hour FE places are offered over either 5 mornings (9-12) or 5 afternoons (1-4) alternatively some 2½ day places are available for working parents – either Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning or Wednesday afternoon Thursday and Friday. Parents choosing the 2½ day option will need to pay for lunches on the full days.
Once you have been offered a place you will also be offered a home visit. This is a chance for your child to meet their Key Carer and another member of the nursery team in a safe environment. This is an opportunity to share information and begin to build up a relationship with Key members of the nursery staff.
Children can be placed on the waiting list at any time before or after your baby is born. You can do this by phoning the nursery and sharing your details or by popping into the centre. The nursery office is open from 8.30 – 3.30 each day.
For the Under 3’s provision there is a £10 non-refundable charge to be placed on the waiting list. Open days are held each term to enable parents to come and look at the nursery to ensure it is the right place for your baby/young child.
