There are three main entry points into the nursery school; the Nido, from age 6 months to age 2; the Infant Community, age 2 to 3 years; and the Children’s House, from age 3. 

Places become available during the year, therefore it is always worth contacting our admissions to check the current availability of places.

We would expect you to visit the nursery before applying for a place. However we understand that this is not always possible when applying from a distance. We hold tours each week during the year so that you can get a feel for the school on a normal working day. We also hold open mornings in both the Autumn and Summer terms. 

Due to the current coronavirus situation; we are offering personalised tours at the following times:

Monday to Friday 7.30 am to 8.00 am, with Natalie or Karen,

and from 6.00 pm to 6.30 pm with Rebecca.

We also off tours on Saturdays when the nursery is closed.

Virtual Tour's

Join us for a brief presentation explaining our Montessori method, followed by a virtual tour that explains how this holistic approach aims to support each child reach their full potential:

Please contact us to arrange a virtual tour

Some of our admissions procedures have changed slightly as a result of the measures we have put into place to reduce the risk to families and staff at the setting; therefore we are only able to book virtual tours of the nursery during the week, Monday to Friday. If you are unable to attend our virtual tours at the stated times then we may be able to organise an alternative time with you. A personal tour can also be arranged in person on Saturday's. 

Our virtual tours take place using the zoom app. You will need to register and download the app to join our tours. A tour invitation will be sent to you once you have registered for a visit.

Covid-19 Guidance for Families and Early Years Settings - The government guidance explains the 'test and trace' procedure that the nursery will follow and what will happen if a child, parent or member of staff tests positive. We have adopted government guidance throughout our daily practice to ensure that risk to children, their families and staff are kept to a minimum. We will explain the practices with parents and children during the admissions process and continue to reinforce the importance of good hygiene practices with children once they have started.
