Additional & Cancellations

Settling In

We offer families a settling in period to aid your child’s smooth transition into the nursery. During these periods, we advise that parents leave their child so that they can adjust. If you want to stay close by, we have Parent Spaces where you can work, catch up on admin or relax with a coffee. Our standard settling in period is one week however we understand that each child is different, and we are willing to reassess this for the welfare of the child. Settling In is free of charge.

If you need to increase, decrease or change the days that your child attends, please contact the Admissions Team in writing with 8 week’s notice. Amendments to days are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed.

Emergency Days

We work in partnerships with our families, and we understand that sometimes situations can change quickly. Whilst we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate the amendments you need without the required notice, we will always try our best to make amendments. However, this is dependent on the availability of the staff in the nursery to abide to the ratios.
