Admissions

Children can join our nursery throughout the year, however we prefer for them to start at the beginning of a term. We will accept children throughout the year, depending on our availability.  We accept children from 2 years of age until they move into Reception Class.

We do require that children attend for a minimum of two sessions over two days per week to help them settle and form friendships. The Nursery is extremely busy and if we do not have availability for the sessions you would like for your child you may put your child’s name on our waiting list.  From the term after your child turns three, you are eligible to claim 15 hours per week of Nursery Education Funding for 38 weeks per year.  Each term you will receive a funding form from preschool to complete to enable us to claim this funding.  Any hours above the 15 funded which are accessed at nursery will be invoiced for at our usual sessional rate.

We also accept two year funded children; this has a specific criteria in order to be received. Please speak to us if you feel your family situation may be within the criteria.

Once you have decided that we are the right nursery for your child the next step is to complete our Application Form 2021_2022 and return to us. Once a placement has been allocated then we would ask for our registration pack to be completed followed by a home visit prior to your child starting at the Nursery.

Please note that although our premises are on the school grounds we do operate independently from the Primary School and attendance at Ditton Lodge Preschool Nursery does not guarantee a place at Ditton Lodge Community Primary School.

Further information can be found in our Prospectus 2021-2022.
