Nursery Admissions

Admission To Little Crackers Nursery

We take children from when they turn two-years old and advise parents to apply in good time, at least a year in advance for places in our youngest Dormice room. The nursery day currently runs from 7.45am to 6.00pm, 51 weeks a year, to cater for the needs of working parents.

Places are available on a term-time only basis or all year round. Flexible morning and afternoon sessions are available and government nursery and employer childcare vouchers are accepted.

There is a minimum requirement of four sessions a week. 

We have dedicated nursery staff for our Dormice (two-year-olds), Hedgehogs (three-year-olds) and Badgers (four-year-olds).  Each group has its own leader and dedicated staff so they and the children get to know each other well.

If you are interested in your child attending Little Crackers we would recommend that you contact Mrs Jenny Vaughan, our Registrar, who will make an appointment for you and your child to meet with the Nursery Manager, Emma Birch, to discuss availability.

To secure a place, simply complete a Registration Form with your required sessions and preferred start date and return this with the accompanying fee of £75 to the Registrar. You will then receive confirmation in writing that we can offer a nursery place with an acceptance form for you to sign. If the sessions you require are not available your fee will be returned.

Prior to starting, you and your child can attend a number of short settling in sessions, typically two or three, where you will meet your child’s key person. A start date, from which point sessions are billable, will be agreed with Nursery staff at the settling-in sessions.

Little Crackers Availability

If you are interested in a place at Little Crackers for your son or daughter we advise you to enquire in good time as places are limited and tend to get booked up early.

We are currently accepting places for September 2024 entry and beyond across all age groups. 

For further details on the places available, please contact Jenny Vaughan, Registrar on 01926 514410 or email
