We have a gradual admission process over a two week period which is offered free of charge. During these visit’s your child’s time spent in the nursery will be gradually increased starting from an hour with a parent/carer on the first day, an hour on their own on the second day and then increasing the length of every session so your child is happy to stay and play and you are happy to leave your child in our care.
Yes, if you have siblings at nursery, the eldest sibling will have a 10% reduction in fees.
You can either contact us directly by phone and at this point you can discuss any further queries with the nursery manager who will be more than happy to answer any questions, or you can send your enquiry to our Nursery Administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, one week’s applicable fee is paid to secure your child’s place. This deposit is then deducted from your final payment once the nursery receives your 4 weeks’ notice.
We are a fully inclusive nursery and will adapt our care to the individual needs of each child who attends, we have qualified staff with Special Educational Needs training who will discuss with you in detail your child’s needs, any concerns you have and best approach to take to ensure your child settles into the nursery.
When your child start’s in the nursery we follow their routine to ensure there is a smooth transition from home. We use our daily diaries for the younger children to record their day including information on meals and bathroom so you are aware what your child has done throughout the day ready for their special time with you at home. Staff also communicate verbally with all of their key children parents/carers at the beginning and end of your child’s sessions so all information is shared.
We are open 51 weeks of the year, closing over the Christmas period. Please check with a member of the management team to confirm specific dates. We also close on all British Bank Holidays.
We open from 7.30am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday. We also offer half day sessions which are 7.30am-12.30pm for a morning session and 1.00pm-6.00pm for an afternoon session.
