ADMISSIONS

Rainbow Angels Nurseries are warm and welcoming nurseries that aim to nurture every child through their learning by providing them with the best possible start in life.

We offer full or part-time quality day care for children aged 3 months to 11 years from diverse and multicultural backgrounds including private day care, sessional classes, breakfast clubs, afterschool clubs and holiday clubs. Our nursery is accessible to families from the local and surrounding communities and commuting parents and guardians.

Information about our nurseries is widely available in oral and written form. We welcome enquiries from mothers, fathers, guardians and carers, about the support we can offer each child based on their individual requirements.

Our nurseries have a minimum attendance requirement of 2 sessions per week (different days) for each child as this allows staff to better assess your child’s learning journey and development.  We work with mothers, fathers, guardians and carers to ascertain how we can best accommodate each child’s attendance requirement.

By appointment only, prospective parents or guardians are welcome to view our nurseries.

Procedures

Parents, guardians and carers should contact Rainbow Angels Nurseries by telephone or email to confirm availability of places for children, before completing our Child Registration Form.  Once the nursery has confirmed that there are places for children within your child’s age range, parents are required to:

  • •    complete, sign (by both parents or guardian) and return the Child Registration Form to the nursery with the non-refundable          Registration Fee of £75. The nursery will then provide the parent or guardian with the Offer Letter confirming the offer of a place for             the child, fees, start date and attendance sessions

  • •       complete, sign and return the Offer Letter with the relevant Deposit, if not already paid. The Offer Letter and payments should be                 made no later than 5 calendar days after the date of the confirmatory communication, otherwise the offer will lapse and the place               may be allocated to another child

  • •       2 weeks prior to the child’s start date at the nursery, pay the first month’s Nursery Fee, and monthly in advance on the 15th of each           month thereafter as set out in the Offer Letter

Applying For A Nursery Place

To apply for a place at a Rainbow Angels Nursery or to request more information please Contact Us.

Siblings Discount

We offer a 10% discount to siblings of children currently attending the nursery where both are attending for at least 3 full days per week.  The discount applies to the eldest child fees. Priority is given to siblings on our waiting list where the nursery has available places.

Settling In

To make the transition from home or another nursery to a Rainbow Angels Nursery as enjoyable and stress free as possible your child’s Key Person will arrange an appointment with you before your child is due to start nursery to agree a personalised plan for your child’s learning and welfare, and to better understand how we can support your child.

We offer a free one-week settling-in period prior to your child’s start date where you and your child may visit the nursery for an hour per day slowly increasing the time up to three hours per day.  This allows parents and children to get to know the staff and for children to familiarise themselves with our nursery.

Waiting List

Your preffered Rainbow Angels Nursery may not be able to offer your child a place at the nursery at the time of your enquiry.  In such instances we will place your child on our waiting list and contact you when a place becomes available, at which point you will be required to complete our admissions procedures.  Places at our nursery are prioritised and allocated in order of children already in attendance, siblings of children already in attendance, and the amount of sessions being requested. 

Should you no longer require a place at the nursery, please inform the nursery that you wish to have your child’s name removed from the waiting list. 

Cancellation Of Acceptance

Notice of cancellation of acceptance of a place at the nursery should be provided to the nursery at least a term in advance of the child’s start date at the nursery.  Parents who cancel acceptance within this time are not required to pay fees in lieu of notice but the nursery will retain the Deposit.  

Where notice is less than a term before your child’s start date or your child does not join the nursery without the parent cancelling the acceptance of a place, a month’s fees will be payable to Rainbow Angels Nursery.  

Cancellations must be emailed to the nursery or delivered by recorded post.  Parents should ensure that they receive confirmation from the nursery that the cancellation request has been received.

Deposit

The Deposit may be refunded upon your child leaving the nursery less any outstanding payments due to the nursery.  Please note that the nursery may retain the Deposit in keeping with our Cancellation Policy.
