Admissions Policy

At Purple Willows Day Nursery, we uphold principles of equality and inclusion, ensuring that all children have access to high-quality care and education. We are registered and regulated by Ofsted, which conducts inspections to monitor services catering to children, young people, and learners of all ages.

Age Range: We welcome children aged 3 months to 5 years old, providing a nurturing environment where they can learn, grow, and thrive.

Contract and Agreement


Upon acceptance of a place at our nursery, parents will be expected to sign a contract outlining the terms and conditions of enrollment. We ask that any agreement concerning placement be promptly returned to us to ensure timely processing and commencement of care.


Financial Arrangements


Financial arrangements must be made and approved before a child attends our childcare facility. A non-refundable registration fee of £100 is required for non-funded spaces to add a child's name to our registry. This fee covers administrative costs associated with enrollment.

Funded Childcare 

Government funding for childcare is vital, supporting families in accessing affordable childcare options. In England, two main government funding programs aim to alleviate the financial burden of childcare: the 15-hour and 30-hour funded childcare schemes. These initiatives provide crucial support to families in meeting the costs of childcare services.

However, it's important to stay informed about changes to these schemes. Since April 2024, there have been adjustments to these schemes' entitlement criteria and availability. It's essential for families to understand these changes to make informed decisions regarding their childcare arrangements.


At Purple Willows, we understand that families may have different needs and preferences regarding childcare attendance. That's why we offer the option to 'stretch' these funded hours over the full year. This allows your child to attend our childcare facility every week, helping them establish a routine, while also evenly spreading the associated fees over the entire year.

*Terms and conditions apply to funded hours of Childcare. Please read our funded hours policy for more information
