Hope Green Private Day Nursery is registered for 30 children, between the ages of 0 and 5 years.
The above statement is taken from the registration document and is the overriding policy in respect of admissions.
Other matters taken into account in deciding which child can be offered a place in the nursery are:
Availability of spaces, taking into account the staff/child ratios, the age of the child and the registration requirements.
When the application is received (extra weight is given to those who have been on the waiting list the longest)
The nursery’s ability to provide the facilities for the welfare of the child.
A child requiring a full-time place may have preference over one requiring a part-time place. This is dependent upon work commitments, occupancy and room availability.
Extenuating circumstances affecting the child's welfare or the welfare of his/her family.
Children who have siblings who are already with us.
We operate an inclusion and equality policy and ensure that children have access to nursery places and services, irrespective of gender, race, religion, colour or creed.
Prior to a child attending nursery, parents/carers must complete and sign a contract and registration form. These forms provide the nursery with personal details relating to the child. For example, name, date of birth, address, emergency contact details, dietary requirements, collection arrangements, fees and sessions, contact details for parents/carers, doctor’s contact details, health visitor contact details, allergies, parental consent, vaccinations etc.
