Admissions Policy

Pencil Pots Day Nursery aims to ensure the provision provides high quality childcare while providing flexibility for parents, balanced with the effective running of the nursery.
Applications for nursery places will be considered on the following basis.
Priority will be given to parents requiring full time places. A minimum of 3 sessions per week (half a day = 1 session) must be booked in line with good childcare practice and to enable effective planning within the nursery.
Where possible, within the above criteria, priority will be given to siblings of children already attending the setting.
Nursery sessions are offered as follows:
Full time: 7:00am - 7:00pm
Part Time: 7:00am - 1:00pm OR 1:00pm - 7:00pm
Minimum of three half days
The nursery acknowledges that parents' needs may change. Consideration will be given to a reduction in sessions subject to the changes being compatible with the efficient running of the nursery. If agreement is given to a reduction in sessions, one calendar month's notice must be given in writing. Full fees will be charged for the notice period. A reduction of less than 4 sessions per week will not be considered
Refunds cannot be given for non-attendance, family holidays, sickness or other reasons, as our staffing costs are incurred whether your child attends or not.
Additional sessions may be agreed according to availability of spaces and in consultation with the nursery manager.
Once a place has been offered and accepted, the agreed start date must stand. In exceptional circumstances, the manager may agree to extend the start date by a maximum of two weeks. If a place is to be kept open after this period, full fees will have to be charged.
