Things you need to know

How do I book a place at the nursery for my child?

Once you have visited the nursery and decided that we are right for you and your child, you can secure a place with a £20 non-refundable deposit.

How will my child be helped to settle into the nursery?

We offer free trial sessions before every child starts at the nursery. The amount of trials will depend on the individual child’s needs.  During these settling-in times you will get to know your child’s key person and can pass on information specific to your child, that will enable us to care for their individual needs. It is very common for children to become upset when being separated from mum and dad for the first time.  We will always call you if your child becomes very distressed. Most children settle after the first few sessions.
