Admission & Transfer

Our nursery staff aim to ensure smooth entry into Probus Nursery, transition through EYFS and into the school's Reception Class (if your child secures a place with us).  We offer a comprehensive induction programme for pupils prior to starting Probus Nursery which is designed to allow the children to become familiar with staff and routines and for parents to meet with the staff. Likewise all rising-5 children will experience life in the Reception class with regular visits into the 'big' classroom, meeting their teachers and having lots of fun in a new environment. 


If you are considering Probus Nursery for your child then please do get in touch as we always encourage visits from prospective parents and carers.  Once your little one starts with us (a nervous time for child and adult alike at times!), you are welcome to stay with your child until you both feel settled and the fun and excitement of new toys and activities kicks in and you are able to leave with a smile on your face too! 


Age of Admission

Probus Nursery has provision for up to 30 children per session.  We operate a waiting list for children who wish to attend sessions that are over-subscribed.  Invoices for non-funded sessions and additional sessions over the 15 hours free nursery entitlement (if you are not eligible for 30 hours) are sent on a termly basis and we ask that 50% is paid at the start of term with the remainder due by half-term. 


Please note that the free nursery entitlement of 15 hours (or 30 hours depending on eligibility) begins the term AFTER your child turns 3 years of age.  Probus Nursery is not currently able to provide any 2-year-old funded places and can only accept children from the term AFTER they turn 2.5 years. We currently have availability throughout the week so please contact us for more details.
