Applying for a Place

Applying for a Place

We are happy to show prospective children and families around the nursery. Whilst we encourage parents to just drop in for a look round, we are also security conscious so we kindly ask that parents wishing to view the nursery, please telephone us beforehand on 01204 361120 so we can discuss an approximate mutually convenient time for you to look round.

Once parents have decided they wish to reserve a place at Daisy Chains for their child, we will check availability. For all nursery places booked, we require a retainer fee of one weeks fee. This is refunded at the end of the child’s times at daisy Chains providing the required four weeks notice is given. Retainer fees are not refunded if places are cancelled.

Our admissions policy states that places are offered usually on a first come, first served basis but preference may be given to siblings of children already in the setting or where places are available in specific age groups.

Once a nursery places has been reserved by a retainer fee, preliminary visits are arranged following an optional home visit. Preliminary visits are usually a one hour session with the parent staying for the first visit, then a further two, one-hour sessions. Extra visits are offered to children who are finding the settling in process particularly difficult.
