How do I arrange to come and look a round the nursery
Do I have to pay a registration fee?
Yes there is a £35 fee which is none refundable. This doesn't apply if you are only using the 15 hours government funded childcare.
Does my child have a settling in period?
Settling in visits should began around one month before a child is due to start. Children can have as many visits as is needed as every child is unique!
