Additional information about the application process

Waiting list

  • Anyone can join the waiting list by filling out the contact form on the right
  • You remain on the waiting list until we can offer you a place or you find alternative childcare
  • There is no charge for joining the waiting list
  • We appreciate that some families have been on the waiting list for a long time, unfortunately once an age group is full, it is hard to accommodate new children in that cohort unless someone leaves
  • Children tend to move together therefore places rarely come up mid year (November to July)
  • Seedlings Day Nursery only asks for payments if we can offer a place and it is confirmed in writing
free painting


  • our main transition happens between July and October
  • as 4 year olds leave for primary school, all other children move up an age group and we allocate places to new babies in our youngest group
  • internal transition: children tend to move together with their group, visit their new room at first, spend gradually more time before they are there for all day – transition usually takes a week
    • sometimes staff members move as well, but that depends on the staff structure
    • transition is discussed and agreed with the family and staff members
  • attendance, settling in sessions

Admission of new children

    • new children usually join between July and October in Rainbow group
    • bookings are confirmed in writing after we received the deposit (£500) and registration fee (£55)
    • booking confirmation contains children’s start date, days off attendance, settling in sessions

Sibling priority

    • we kindly ask parents to register sibling as soon as possible
    • when we have a vacancy, priority will be give to sibling whose brother/sister already attends the setting
    • we cannot guarantee places for sibling
    • we decide cases on an individual basis

Outstanding Testimonials

We receive excellent feedback from parents whose children attend our nursery, for example:

“I cannot begin to thank you all for the incredible love, car and support all the staff at Seedlings have given our daughter over the last few years.

She has absolutely loved being at Seedlings. We feel lucky to have found such a fantastic nursery for our little girl to experience. I am always filled with happiness when I pick her up and see her smiling, playing and always having fun…”
