If you have not already visited our nurseries please contact us to arrange a suitable time. We encourage visiting before booking your child in so that you get a feel for the nursery, meet the key members of staff and see the children engaged and happy.
If you decide to place your child with us at Hugo & Holly Day Nursery the first step is to complete and return the application form below:
In addition, in order to secure the place we require a non-refundable registration fee, equivalent to 1 week’s fees.
Following acknowledgement of the application we will contact you to arrange a start date and settle sessions. During the initial settle session we will go through your child’s profile and essential paperwork including a parental contract, whilst your child has a short play with the other children, with you nearby. Either on this occasion or on the following one your child can stay for a short play without you. After this we discuss with you whether any further short sessions would be beneficial before the pre-arranged start date.
The settling sessions are designed to help your child adjust by meeting the other children and familiarising themselves with the surroundings and staff. Furthermore this settling period gives you, as a parent, the opportunity to discuss your child’s individual needs with their key worker and also any anxieties that you may have. We use this opportunity to observe your child and subsequently raise any questions we have regarding their care and needs. We aim to ensure that not only are our children happy and secure but that our parents needs are taken care of too.
