Children are enrolled to Little Barn Owls Ltd on a non-discriminatory basis. The Nursery accepts parents/carers and children regardless of gender, race, cultural background, religion, physical or mental ability or disability, health or social class. Staff members are aware of and sensitive to each child’s needs, level of development and background.

First-Come, First-Served

Places are offered on a first-come first-served basis, using the date that parents/carers send us a completed registration form, along with the registration fee and deposit.

Fees Payable at Registration

For each child you register with us, a non-returnable/refundable registration fee of £35 plus a deposit of £200 must be paid via BACS

Admissions Period

Our admissions period (intake window) is July 1st to December 1st each year. Your child can start with us any time between those two dates, if we have the availability.

Should you wish your child to start nursery outside of this period, a retainer of 25% of your first full months’ invoice will be due each month past the end of the admissions period that we have to reserve your child’s space. See below for further explanation.

Minimum Booking

We will take bookings of one day/week on our lowest occupancy days. Generally, our lowest occupancy days are Mondays and/or Fridays, but you can check this when enquiring about availability.

We offer full days (8am – 6pm) each weekday.

On Mondays and Fridays only, we offer school day sessions (8.30am – 3.30pm). All bookings are for 51 weeks of the year.

The Waiting List

If you are unable to register your child for the days/ start date you require, we will ask you if you’d like to join our waiting list. Please be aware that addition to the waiting list does not guarantee a nursery space for your child.
