Child Placement policy

All Saints Pre School is open from 9.00 a.m until 12.00 a.m every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday during school term time and open from 9.00am to 3.00pm every Wednesday during school term time. The Pre School requires a minimum of three mornings per week to a maximum of five depending on availability.  If requests for admission exceed the number of places available you will be placed on a waiting list if a suitable place is not immediately available. During your time on the waiting list you will be contacted from time to time to determine whether you are still interested in a place and also to give you some indication of when a place is likely to become available. However, you are also encouraged to contact the Nursery Management email allsaintsatlobleyhill@gmail.com or call 0191 4406245 to ascertain the latest position regarding availability.  It is essential to the efficient running of the Pre School and to other prospective parents/carers that you notify us immediately should you no longer require a place.

Once the Pre School is aware that a place is going to become available, the parents/carers at the top of the list with a child of the correct age for the vacancy will be offered that place. Usually this will be some weeks or months in advance of the place becoming available. On most occasions the place is accepted, but in instances where the place is not taken up and secured, it is offered to the next parent/carer on the list with a child of the appropriate age for the vacancy.

Once a child has been allocated a place on an agreed basis, it is expected that parents/carers will adhere to these arrangements. Failure to do so may result in termination of the contract.

Termination of Registration
This may occur when:

  1. The child has reached the age limit.
  2. If, despite best efforts, a child fails to settle, the contract may be terminated with immediate effect at the sole discretion of the Pre School Manager.
  3. Parents/carers wishing to terminate their registration must give two weeks’ notice to the Pre School Manager
  4. Parents/carers contracts may be terminated if accounts are not cleared in the given time limit. This includes a sibling attending the session with outstanding payments.
