Joining Red Squirrels Nursery


Red Squirrels Nursery is open to all families in the community and admits children regardless of sex, race, religious beliefs or ability. We aim to ensure that all sections of the community have access to the nursery through open, fair and clearly communicated procedures. Spaces are allocated according to availability, within the permitted ratios of adult: age group.

Contact the Nursery on 017683 41472 to arrange a visit.

Registration and Consent Forms

Following an initial visit to the Nursery, parents/carers will be asked to fill in an admission form to formally register their child and provide us with helpful information. A consent form is also included, authorising the staff to act in certain situations varying from a medical emergency to changing wet clothes. You will also be asked if you wish to give permission for your child's photograph to be used in any publicity materials.

Settling In

We pride ourselves on making children feel welcome from the very first time they visit and we want the settling in period to be a happy one for all concerned.

Your child's first session at the nursery is free and we are flexible as to its use; you may wish to stay for part of it, all of it or leave your child to find their feet with our support. We are always at the end of the phone should you wish to find out how they are getting on during the day. Thereafter, the sessions can be built on as appropriate; we find that children settle in with us very quickly and you will receive lots of feedback from the keyperson assigned to your child. We appreciate any advice you can give us about likes/dislikes and topics we can talk about to interest your child and of course if there is a special toy or something they would like to show to the other children just bring it in and put it in the Special Box!
