Starting the Nursery


Before a child can start in the nursery a few requirements must be met, registration forms (which are available from the nursery) must be completed and a small number of free introductory sessions need to be attended, these are:

  • A show around with the parents.

  • A one hour settle in session with the parents and child.

  • A settle in session without the parents

These sessions are to allow you the chance to see the nursery and learn what you need to make a fully informed decision on whether Bede Burn Kindergarten is the right place for your child. We aim to be as flexible as possible with sessions but they are subject to availability, in the event that the sessions you desire are unavailable we will try to work the best alternatives for you and your child. A £25 registration fee is also required for a place in the nursery.

Key Workers

In order to be able to best support your child's development we run a scheme in which every child has there own key worker who is responsible for carrying out regular observations, monitoring and recording the child's progress and development. These can then be used to tailor the activities that they do in the nursery in order to best support the areas of development that they need the most support with and to do the activities that they enjoy the most. We also hold a parents evening every six months where you can come in and find out what your child has been doing, however you are also more than welcome to see the child’s key worker whenever you wish.
