1. How does the waiting list operate?

Availability of spaces is taking into account the staff/child ratio, the age of the child and the registration requirements.

When the application is received (extra weight is given to those who have been on the waiting list longest). Our ability to provide the facilities of the welfare of the child.

A child wanting a full-time place will usually have preference over one requiring part time only.

Those children who are siblings of those already with us, or where there is proven existing connection.

Children who currently attend the nursery are given the option to increase their number of days by taking a vacant place should they wish to.

2. How long is the waiting list?

The waiting time could take from 6 months to over a year depending on your child’s age and availability of the days you require and when you would like your child to start.

3. When will my child get a place?

We will email you every 6 months with an update as to where your child is on the waiting list.

When a place becomes available we will call to update you and to ask if you are still interested.

If you have not received a phone call, that means there are no available spaces for your child at this moment in time.

4. When can I look around the nursery?

Viewing the nursery usually takes place approximately every 6 months and is held on a Saturday morning between 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

However, if the waiting list far exceeds demand we are unable to hold an open day until spaces are available.
