“Stephanie was very happy and secure at Laurel Way and we felt this playgroup had the edge on the various others that we had seen particularly because the staff are incredibly
dedicated and have a very rich understanding of young children.”
—Melanie C. (Parent)
Admissions & Enrolment
Children can attend Morning Session, Afternoon Session or full day subject to subscription. Morning Session children must attend all five mornings. Full & part time schedules are fixed at the beginning of each term subject to availability as places are limited to 32 children per session.
An enrolment form is given to prospective parents for completion. An administrative fee of £30 must be paid when submitting the form. This is non refundable.
On receipt of a completed Enrolment Form and the £30 enrolment fee, your child's name will be added to our waiting list for entrance into the Nursery. At the beginning of the term prior to entrance an offer of a place and a Registration Form will be sent to be completed and returned. After acceptance is received, "drop-in" sessions to introduce your child to the Nursery can be arranged.
A Welcome Pack is given to new children at the last drop-in session.
It is our intention to make our Nursery accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community In order to achieve this we operate the following admissions policy:
✽ We ensure that information about out nursery is accessible - in written and spoken form.
✽ We arrange our waiting list in birth order. In addition our policy may take into account the following:
- Children already in attendance changing sessions
- The siblings of children attending both past and present
✽ We monitor the gender and ethnic background of children joining the group to ensure that no accidental discrimination is taking place.
✽ We make our equal opportunities policy widely known.
