We always welcome visitors to our nursery and we would be pleased to share a morning with you and your child to show you “what we get up to” – if you wish to visit please telephone Mrs. Brissenden on 01233 850239 to make an appointment.
(An appointments system avoids us receiving too many visitors on any one day as this could become disruptive and unsettling for the children attending) – please also note: it is usual for the main telephone to be answered by our answer machine during nursery hours, but messages are checked regularly and we will return your call or respond to your request.
How Do I Register My Child For A Place
When you visit us, if you wish to reserve a place for your child you should request an appropriate registration form, either for full day care including extended hours, or for our part-time places subject to availability.
Once the form is completed and returned to nursery together with the appropriate registration fee, you will receive confirmation that a place has been booked. If your child is joining either our Duckling or Gosling groups, a nursery sweat shirt and shoe bag will be available for your collection when you next visit us.
If your little one is joining us in our Puddle Duck rooms, a sweatshirt will become available when they transfer to the Duckling room. If your required group is fully subscribed your name will be put on our waiting list. with places being offered as they become available to children on a first come first served basis, i.e. corresponding to the date the registration form was received by us.
The Principal or Nursery Manager will always give full details of places which are available to enable you to decide whether to register to join our waiting list. Please note , part of the registration fee for part-time places is non-returnable, as it is used to cover the additional costs incurred whilst we prepare for your child’s entrance to nursery. It also covers the cost of trial sessions which we will share prior to your child’s first term. If we are unable to offer you a suitable place at the nursery you may request that the registration fee be refunded.
