Terms & Conditions 

Our Prospectus

When can I apply for nursery sessions? 

Once we have received your application form and registration fee, we can advise on next steps. We allocate sessions two terms in advance so can provide information on this, depending upon your intended start date.

We would recommend applying at least 9 months in advance of your child’s start date to provide us with the best possible chance of meeting your needs and being able to provide suitable availability. Availability is subject to demand - if we are unable to meet your requirements, we will do our very best to offer alternative sessions/days.
