This process will also apply to children who are eligible for the 'Talking 2's' funding, following their second birthday.

 

Parents and carers that wish to register for funded sessions can collect registration forms from the admin office. Once the forms are complete and returned we will invite you to some induction sessions near the time your child is due to start.

We will also book a short home visit where we can get to know your child and the family on a one to one basis in an environment comfortable to you and your child.

 

To Register for Daycare

We advise that any parent/carer who is interested in using our nursery for childcare, books a tour of the setting. You can book this by visiting the admin office or calling by telephone.

You can collect admission forms from the office at the end of your tour.

Once we have received your completed admission forms we will book you in for a visit (free of charge).

These visits can be arranged in two ways:

  • Two, one hour sessions (one with child and parents/carers, one with just child) or;
  • One, two hour session (parent/carer can leave once child is settled and parents and key worker have filled in 'all about me' paperwork).

Oversubscription Procedure

 

Should we not have all the sessions you require available, we will add your child to our waiting list and contact you as soon as those sessions become available.

 

The waiting list operates on a 'first come, first serve' basis so sessions will be offered in order of when children were added to the list.
