Admission and registration

Children aged between 2 and 5 years can be admitted to the nursery in September or January or April.

Admission is based on 'first come, first served' basis and places are allocated as arise from the waiting list.

Children are placed on the waiting list upon receipt of non-refundable registration fee of £50.00 and fully completed registration form which is filed in the received date order.

Receipt of registration form does not guarantee an offer of a place.

Parents are advised to register their child as soon as possible after birth. Parents are encouraged to visit Nightingale Montessori before registering. Siblings of current pupils are given priority over other candidates as long as they are registered at least a year before the preferred admission date.

Places are offered about 9 months in advance on a first come first served basis. 

An Acceptance deposit of £500.00 is payable upon acceptance of a place by the deadline stated in the offer letter/email. The deposit is refundable when the child leaves the nursery providing a full term's notice is given. The deposit will be deducted from the final term's fees, taking into account any balance due. The acceptance deposit should only be paid once a firm decision to join the nursery has been made. 


Please contact the nursery for up to date termly fees. Fees are payable on the first day of term and no reduction is made should the child be absent from school for any period. A full term's fees, less the Acceptance deposit, payable as a debt if less than a term's notice of cancellation has been given.
