Admissions Procedure

Focus: To identify how a child can secure a placement at the nursery.

Clowns Nursery Group offers full- and part-time day care facilities for children aged 6 months – 4 years 11 months.

We operate an inclusion and equality policy and ensure that all children have access to nursery places and services irrespective of their gender, race, ability, religion or sexual orientation.

Places are offered depending on availability. If we are unable to offer an immediate start date, parents/carers will be invited to join our waiting list. Consideration will be given to siblings where possible.

A registration fee is required in order to place a child’s name on our waiting list.  A registration fee does not guarantee a place at the nursery.

If a child is known to have special educational needs before joining the setting, we will work in partnership with parents and all other agencies involved to ascertain any additional requirements, including any need for extra resources, and explore how these can be accessed.  Our aim is to ensure that every child receives the best possible support from the moment they join the nursery.

We will monitor practice to ensure that we work within the 2010 Equality Act.
