Admissions

Footsteps Day Nursery has the capacity for twenty-six children.
6 children between the ages of one and two
6 children between the ages of two and three
14 children between the ages of three and five

We consider every child has the right to a place and we aim to do the best we can to accommodate every child. Other factors will be taken into consideration: -

  1. Availability of spaces in the nursery ensuring that the child/staff ratios are correct
  2. The age of the child
  3. The times and sessions required
  4. When the application is received - we have a waiting list in operation which will be strictly on a first come first served basis
  5. The nursery's abilities to meet the child's needs
  6. Depending on the children already in the nursery, a full time place will usually take preference over a part time place
  7. If there is already a sibling at the nursery then everything possible will be done to offer the child a place
  8. At Footsteps we are inclusive. Any child has a right to a nursery place regardless of gender, race, religion, colour, creed, disability, special educational needs, language, family structure, ethnic or national origin, marital status, sexuality or political beliefs
