Children are generally admitted to the Learning Tree in the order in which parents apply for places. Siblings of present children are normally given preference.
Other factors may also arise – for example, if there is not a place in the appropriate age group (in line with numbers of each age on our OFSTED Registration), an older/younger child may be offered a place even though he/she may have applied later.
The nursery owner and the nursery manager also reserve the right to offer a vacant place at any time to a child who in their view has particularly pressing social or other personal reasons which, in the view of the owner and the manager, means that he/she should take precedence. The individual reasons would be confidential.
There is no registration fee.
When a definite place is offered, parents are asked to pay one week’s fees as a deposit. This will be used in place of the first week’s fees when the child starts at the nursery.
It is not returnable if the parent decides not to take up the place for any reason.
