Admissions Policy

TiggyWigs Children’s Day Nursery is a registered provider of childcare on non-domestic premises on the Early Years Register and we fully comply with the requirements for the Early Years Register set out in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. All places at TiggyWigs are subject to availability, taking into account staff/child ratios, the age of the child and space requirements.

 

We operate an inclusion policy where all children are welcome regardless of nationality, religion, culture, race, gender, physical ability or disability, health or social class. Other matters which are taken into consideration when offering a place in the nursery are: -

 

  • When the registration form was received.
  • Our ability to provide the facilities required for the welfare of the child.
