This is the legal ratio requirement but we often run at a ratio of 1 : 6 for 3-5 year olds.
What is the age range of children attending the group?
Children may start as soon as they are 2 , provided there is space for them. Most children remain in our care until they are rising 5's.
How many children are you able to take each morning?
We are registered to have up to a maximum of 26 children.
Can I come to look around the group before making my decision?
Yes, we actively encourage you to come and look around us, and that of the other local settings. This will help you choose the right environment for you and your child. We encourage families to visit for a session both prior to going on the waiting list and as many as you require before your child starts with us.
Could I send my child to you ?
For some families thinking a group wouldn't accept their child is real worry, for a range of reasons from being in nappies to an allergy of specific development need, give us a call to discuss how we can support your family.
