Starting Nursery

Thank you for choosing Starfish Nursery for your child!  In order to secure your child’s place you will need to complete and return the admission forms below, provide evidence of your child’s date of birth (e.g Birth Certificate or Passport) and pay a one-off £30.00 registration fee*.  You will then receive a letter to confirm a start date, which will also give your the option for your child to attend two ‘settling in’ sessions.

  • If your child is entitled to a ‘free place’ (ie. all of their sessions will be fully funded by 2 or 3-4 year old early years funding), the registration fee will be refunded within 28 days of the child’s first date of attendance.

Once started your child will be assigned a key-worker, this will then be your main point of contact at the Nursery. Any concerns regarding your child should be discussed with your child’s key-worker or the Room Leader.

If your child is staying all day you will need to provide an appropriate lunch box with a healthy lunch for your child to enjoy. Please also provide a named drinks bottle. A mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack (of fruit and carbohydrates) is provided for all children along with a carton of milk.

Please always send your child to each session with a named bag containing spare clothes, along with nappies, nappy bags and baby wipes if required.

We have the option for you to purchase a Starfish Nursery uniform, this is not compulsory and is entirely optional. If you would like to purchase items please visit Price & Buckland
