We aim to be accessible to children and families – whatever their individual needs – from all sections of the local community.

Any parent and/or carer thinking about Deerhurst for their child is encouraged to visit us – making an appointment to make sure that we can give time to each visiting family, and to assist with the security of the Nursery.

We operate a waiting list system and places will be offered as fairly as is possible. However priority is given to children already attending the Nursery – for example:

  • one of our toddlers moving up to little-pre-school
  • or a family wanting to increase their hours and/or sessions.

A non-refundable deposit of £30.00 is required to secure a child’s place, which is deducted from your fees when your child starts at nursery.

Before starting at nursery, parents and/or carers will be required to complete admission and consent forms, and receive and exchange necessary information.

Any parent/carer who secures a place for their child at Deerhurst will experience a nursery that really cares about their child and offers an excellent pre-school learning experience.

See Starting at Nursery to find out more about helping your child to settle in at nursery.
