Registering your child
Before registering your child with us, we recommend you book a visit to come and see for yourselves what we can offer you and your family. After that, you may choose to
1. Complete the waiting list form and pay the £30 waiting list fee
This is usually when the preferred start date is many months away
This minimal fee just means you will be on our radar, and that we will aim to periodically keep in touch with you, to find out if you are still wanting a place with us, if your requirements to have changed etc.
2. Complete the full registration form and send in your deposit to secure a place.
Once we have received and acknowledged your deposit, we can guarantee you a place. A place in the nursery implies a place available for your child right through until they leave to start school
30 Hours Extended Free Childcare.
30 hours childcare for three and four year olds has been available in England from September 2017. This doubles the 15 hours previously available and could save working families up to £5,000 a year. Parents need to act before September and check their eligibility using the online childcare calculator www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator
Tax Free Childcare is an online payment account, which parents use solely to pay their childcare costs. For every £8 that families pay in, the Government will make a top-up payment of £2, up to a maximum of £2,000 per child per year for children under 12 years old (£4,000 for disabled children under 17 years old). Parents can check which providers in their area are ready, using the childcare provider checker:
