Incy Wincys Pre-School aims to make our provision accessible to children and families from all sections of the community. Our admissions policy operates in conjunction with our Valuing Diversity and Promoting Equalities Policy to ensure that it is applied in a fair and unbiased manner.
Children may attend our Pre-School when they reach 2 years of age. A child can remain with us until the term before their 5th birthday or starting school.
We arrange our waiting list in birth order, with the eldest children taking priority. Our policy may also take into account siblings already attending the Pre-School and the length of time a child has been on the waiting list. Having said that we try to accommodate each child on the date asked for.
No more than 20 children may attend at any one session.
We are flexible about attendance patterns to accommodate the needs of individual children and families, but ask that children attend for a minimum of two sessions per week. This is to ensure that children benefit from continuity and stability in their learning environment.
