Nursery Admissions

Little Badgers Nursery can accommodate 24 children in each session. Children may start in the Nursery from the age of two.  Admission is without reference to ability or aptitude and is on the basis of equal opportunities.  We currently have one entry date in September as the places are usually taken at this time for the year, however, we do have a waiting list and will contact people on the list if any vacancies occur throughout the year.

 

Registering for a place

Parents wishing to apply for a place in the Nursery are encouraged to complete a registration form. This expresses their interest and will put your child on the waiting list. The form is available to the left of this page or can be obtained by contacting the school office.

 

Visits

You may request a visit to the Nursery either before you register or before you are asked to accept a place for your child.  Please contact the school office to make an appointment 01252 837538.
 

Admissions

Parents will be contacted as soon as possible during the summer term for September intake.  Parents will be asked to complete a form to confirm that they require the space.  If there is no response by the date given the place may be reallocated to another family.  Preference will be given to families where the child needs a space from September.  Parents will be asked to complete an admissions form and return to the school office.

Places will be allocated using the following criteria:
Spaces available
Date of registration form being received by the office
Age of the child (each session will have a balance of 3 year olds and 2 year olds)
Siblings in the Nursery
 

Inductions

Families will be offered an induction session where parents can stay and play with their child.  This will give the child the opportunity to acclimatize to the setting and meet the staff.
