You can put your child’s name down for a place at the pre-school at any time. The procedure for registering with the setting is to complete a waiting list form, either by downloading a copy from the website (* see below) or by picking up a copy from pre-school.
Our bookings secretary will store ALL waiting list forms. The following procedure has been in place for a number of years and is as follows:
We have a waiting list in place. A child’s name will be placed on the waiting list on their 2nd birthday. Prior to this their details will be held on the Under 2’s list.
Priority for offering places to children on the waiting list is given in this order:
· Looked After Children requiring a place will be given first priority. If no LAC require a place the following will apply:
· Half of the places will be offered based on time on waiting list and half of places will be offered based on age in relation to school entry.
In order to balance the provision and needs of all the children we are only able to provide spaces for a maximum of 6 children aged under 3 years in each session.
We would also point out that we have a maximum of 55 children on roll at any time, as this is the number we can comfortably manage – for small group activities and record keeping.
