Children can attend nursery from the day after their 3rd birthday if their birthday falls between the 1st of August and the end of February.
Enrolment for the nursery takes place throughout the nursery year. Application forms can be obtained from the school office and can be completed when your child reached their second birthday. Your child’s birth certificate and proof of address have to be presented. If you wish your child to start nursery in the August term please ensure your form is completed and handed into the school office by preceding January. Details of this are given in the local press annually.
When your child is enrolled in nursery, they will be allocated a Key Worker and put in a nursery group. The Key Worker is the main point of contact for your child.
On the first day at nursery parents and children will be gradually introduced to the routine of the nursery session. Parents are asked to complete their administration form and share information about their child with a member of staff.
Meanwhile, your child will be getting to know the nursery playroom, have the opportunity to play with toys and join in some activities. On the first day we ask that children stay for an hour and then in discussion with your child’s key worker we will decide how long they should stay the following day.
