This will probably be your child’s first time in such a big setting, so it is vitally important that the transition from home to Nursery is as ‘worry free’ as possible. We have developed our admissions procedure with this in mind.

As it is essential to develop a good relationship with each child, we will be admitting the children in small groups over a four-week period for a shortened day. By week five, all children will be attending Nursery. For the first four weeks the children will be in Nursery for 1hr – these details will have been given to you by Mrs McGovern on your visit day in August.

Group 1 will attend from 9:00am-10:00a.m

Group 2 will attend from 10:30am-11:30a.m

From Monday 21st September all children will be in Nursery from 9:00a.m-10:30am

The full session, i.e 9:00am-11:30am will commence on Monday 28th September.


On day one of your child’s attendance, you will be allowed to bring your child into the Nursery building, show them their peg and leave them to the classroom door. After the initial day, Mrs McGovern will take the children from the Nursery gate and bring them into class. No adults will be allowed in the building. If you feel your child has difficulty settling, please speak with the class teacher and alternative arrangements may be made.

Snack Money

Snack money provides children with a healthy choice of snack five days a week.  The cost is £5:00 on Week 1, then £2:00 every Week from week 2.  It also supports the purchase of seasonal resources throughout the year. Snack money should be put in an envelope and placed in a box (available on Mondays) outside the Nursery entrance. Please note your child’s name and the day/date, on an envelope.
