Parents may register their child/ren for the Pre School by completing our registration form. The registration form must be fully completed (for each child) and returned to the Administrator along with a refundable administration fee of £25 which is returned in full (as a reduction in the first term’s fees) when the child starts at the Pre-School.

This fee is also refunded if a child starts in a later term than the term initially requested (for any reason), and if a child cannot be offered a place within a reasonable period of time. When we have received your completed registration form, we will place your child/ren on to the waiting list for the appropriate starting term based on their age or the term that you have specified.

Your application will be monitored and parents will be offered a place (if available) during the second half of the term prior to the joining term. Places are offered in date order that the registration was received.

 In the event that Potten End Pre-school is unable to offer a place for your child from the required starting age of the term you have requested, we will defer your child’s application to the following term unless you request otherwise. Please be aware that it is imperative that you contact us as soon as possible if your personal details change whilst your child is on our waiting list, for example change of address or telephone numbers. If you do not keep us informed and we cannot contact you, it is likely that you will jeopardise the place being offered to you as it may be allocated to another family with your application removed from our waiting list.

 Place offers will initially be made verbally by telephone and upon a verbal acceptance, a formal offer letter will be sent to you along with our Terms and Conditions statement. Once your signed acceptance of the place offer is received by our Administrator, you will be required to provide us with 4 weeks written notice should you change your mind or payment in lieu will be charged. You will be invited along with your child to attend an Induction Visit at the Pre-school to meet the Pre-school Manager and the Key Worker assigned to your child. A start date is normally given to you in the Place Offer letter. Please be aware Induction visits are specifically aimed towards your child’s first few days and should not be confused with general visits. If you have not previously visited the pre-school for a general visit and would like to do so, please contact us as soon as possible.

During the Induction visit, we will ask you to complete an Enrolment and Medical history form with important contact details should we ever need to contact you in an emergency. This form must be completed and returned to your child’s key worker or the administrator before your child commences their first session with us. These details are kept on file in confidence. Should your personal/medical details change at any time it is imperative that you advise us at the earliest opportunity to enable us to update the information you have provided.
