Parents are very welcome to make an appointment to visit Park Avenue Day Nursery at any time when considering registering their child with us. As we try to avoid taking staff away from caring for children to show families around, we prefer to arrange visits when supernumerary staff are available so that parents can then spend as long as needed to ensure that they are happy with the team and facilities. Please contact us by telephone or email to arrange a visit.
Places are usually in demand, so parents should please contact us to discuss availability before registering their child. Once we have established that we have a place available, parents may register by completing the Registration Form*. Please return the form to the nursery by email or post and enclose the deposit (50% of monthly fees or £150, whichever is the greater), which is non-refundable in the event of cancellation but will be deducted from your final month’s fees before your child leaves the nursery.
We also operate a holiday club to coincide with our local primary school holidays, both state and independent. Please contact us to find out the individual details of each club and to check availability. Parents can register for our forthcoming holiday clubs (Autumn, Christmas, Easter, Summer and all half term holidays) by requesting and completing the Holiday Club registration form and either email or post back to us to confirm the place.
Parents are encouraged to visit the nursery with their child in the few weeks before they are due to start, to get to know the team, environment and routine. During this settling-in time, your child’s key worker will find out more about your child’s routines, likes and dislikes. Depending on your child, this period may be shortened or need to be longer and the number of visits with parents more frequent. Once a child begins to show signs of settling in, parents are encouraged to leave them for short periods of time. There is no charge for settling in sessions. Further information can be found in our Settling In Policy**.
