Admissions Policy

Statement of Intent

It is our intention to make our nursery as accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community.



We aim to ensure that all sections of our community have access to the nursery through open, fair and clearly communicated procedures.



In order to achieve this aim, we operate the following admissions policy

  • We ensure that the existence of the nursery is widely advertised in places accessible to all sections of the community
  • We ensure that information about the nursery is accessible, in written and spoken form, and, where appropriate, in different languages. Where necessary, we will endeavour to provide information in Braille, or through signing or an interpreter.
  • We arrange our waiting list on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. In addition our policy may take account of siblings already attending the nursery.
  • We keep a place vacant, if this is financially viable, to accommodate an emergency admission.
  • We describe our nursery and its practices in terms which make it clear that we welcome fathers and mothers, other relations and other carers including childminders
  • We describe our nursery and its practices in terms of how we treat individuals, regardless of gender, special educational need, disability, background, religion, ethnicity or competence in spoken English
  • We describe our nursery and its practices in terms of how we enable children with disabilities to take part in the life of the nursery
  • We monitor the gender and ethnic background of the children joining the nursery to ensure that no accidental discrimination is taking place
  • We make our Equality and Diversity Policy widely known
  • We consult with families about the opening times of the nursery to avoid excluding anyone
  • We are flexible about attendance patterns to accommodate the needs of individual children and families


This policy is reviewed annually.

This policy was adopted by the management and staff of Beehive Day Nursery on 5th September 2004.
