How do I enroll?

We want to ensure that all potential starters are comfortable and happy with our staff, rooms and activities before deciding to enroll with us. We offer tours of the nursery for all families interested in having their child attend our setting.

During your tour you can meet our staff, ask any curriculum questions you might have, discuss sessions and fees with a member of management and even see our large, grassy garden at the back of the nursery.

After the tour the parents/carers can fill in a waiting list form. Prior to a child’s start date the family and staff organise settling-in sessions so that both the child and the parents/carers are comfortable coming to and from the nursery. Our settling-in sessions are free and every family can have as many or as little as sessions as they need.

When your child starts settling in, the nursery will give you a Parent/Carers Essentials Booklet. This booklet contains information regarding our childcare rooms, the management team, the items you’ll need to supply your child with, and much more! You are welcome to read this book at your leisure and it is yours to keep.

Once you, your child and your child’s Room Leader are happy with your child being settled, we will organise a Home Visit. Our setting uses home visits and settling-in sessions to build a positive relationship between your child, family, and your child’s key worker. Home visits are arranged when your settling in sessions conclude and prior to your child starting nursery. During a home visit, you and your child will be visited by your child’s Key Worker and one of the Management Team, to go through final paperwork, discuss your child’s routine at home, etc.

To arrange a tour with us or enroll your child into our setting, please ring us on 01209 713119 or email us at nursery@gooseberrybush.org and we can organise a date and time convenient for you!
