Waiting list form, fees and other info



As a small early years setting, we have a limited number of spaces. If you join our waiting list, we aim to offer a place between 12 and 24 months from sign up, wherever possible. Unfortunately, we are not able to make a guarantee that you will get a place, but we will try our best to offer you a place in our main intake which is September of each year. Places can free up before then, of course, as existing families circumstances may change.


When a place is offered and accepted, a non refundable enrolment fee of £50 and a deposit will be required to secure the place.




Our security deposit is £500 for one child and £800 for two. This is refunded back to you at the end of your contract with us (providing you have met the notice period requirements as set out in our Terms and Conditions). 



Once you’ve signed up to the waiting list, you’ll be invited to come along and see us. You will need to join the waiting list for a viewing. We generally hold viewings in early Spring through to July.

3 to 5 years old Funding (the term after your child turns 3)


We offer the 15 extended hours funding (known as 30 hours funding).


Flexible and Emergency Childcare


Sometimes you may need child care for the occasional session or odd day. We will always help out where we can and if there is a space available. Priority will be given to children who regularly attend the setting.




Fees are collected in advance on the last day of each month for the month ahead. Late payment charges will occur.

If you book extra sessions these can be paid by BACS in advance.

Fees are still chargeable for absence/sickness.


Late pick up fees


We close at 6pm. Late fees are chargeable for late collection.



Tax free childcare scheme

We are on the Tax-Free Childcare Scheme. Please ask for more details.

Outdoor clothing

All children need to wear sensible footwear all year round, ideally wellies or snow boots or water proof footwear (in the Winter months) or trainers (in the drier weather). No opened toed shoes to be worn.


Children should wear long trousers and socks to protect their legs from scratches or stings. Long sleeved tops are also a great idea to protect skin in the Summer.


In colder weather please bring lots of clothing as layering is the key to being warm.  2 pairs of socks (one thicker pair) as wellies are not great for warmth and this is when snow boots are preferable (as long as they are water proof). 

2 pairs of gloves, one for spare. Please attach the gloves to their coat by clips or elastic so they are less likely to be lost.

Warm woollen hat. Wool works amazingly well to keep you warm.

We do not recommend ski suits as although they are ideal to keep them warm, they can sometimes be too bulky and reduce maneuverability.

You can buy lined waterproof trousers which work really well too and thermal leggings and long sleeved tops.


We will advise you of our recomended brands when you start.


In hotter weather children must wear sun hats/caps and sun cream. Suncream must be applied before the children arrive at the setting and brought in for the day for top ups.
