Admissions & Enrolment Information

St Paul's Christian Playgroup is no longer accepting applications for enrolment as the setting will be closing at the end of the 2022 Summer Term


Leaving the Setting

Fees remain chargeable for any child leaving the setting up to and including the last day of the term within which notice has been given. We ask for at least two weeks notice prior to your child leaving the setting.


On your child’s last day we will sing them a special goodbye song, present them with a goodbye card and offer their profile folder to take with them. We hope they will treasure these and remember fondly their time with us.


It is important that you provide us with details of their new school or nursery so that we can plan a smooth transition for your child.


We believe that children moving from Playgroup to school or another early year’s educator still deserve our very best care and attention. We therefore work closely with other local schools and nurseries to ensure that your child has a smooth transition to their new setting. We do this by arranging visits to their new school/nursery where, along with any other children moving to the same setting, they can meet their new teachers and have a chance to explore the resources and routines. We also try to arrange for their new teachers to visit our setting to read a story and get to know them in their familiar environment.


Your child’s Key Person will help your child to make a transition book with photographs showing their time at Playgroup and also one of their new school which can be used at home to help the child prepare for their move.


With your consent we will provide a written summary to their new school or nursery which will include details of your child’s interests and favourite activities and development to date which will help their new teachers plan effectively.


These strategies have worked well in the past in helping children to settle quickly and happily into their new schools and nurseries.
