ADMISSIONS POLICY

The nursery aims to ensure the provision of quality childcare while providing flexibility for parents, balanced with the effective running of the nursery. We aim to ensure that in the admission of children all individuals are given equal concern and treatment.

Applications for nursery places will be considered on the following basis. Priority will be given to parents requiring full time and full day places.

A minimum of 3 sessions per week (half a day = 1 session) must be booked in line with good childcare practice and to enable effective planning within the nursery.

Where possible, within the above criteria, priority will be given to siblings of children already attending the nursery.

Nursery Sessions are offered as follows:

Full day places are from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm

Part time places are 7.30 am – 1.00 pm 1.00 pm - 6.00 pm

The nursery acknowledges that parents’ needs may change. A change in attendance will require one calendar month’s notice given in writing.

Refunds cannot be given for non-attendance, family holidays, sickness or other reasons, as our staffing costs are incurred whether your child attends or not.

Additional sessions may be agreed according to availability of spaces and in consultation with the Nursery Manager.

Flexibility in days and sessions applied for may increase the possibility of a place being offered.
