Demand for care

Due to a high demand for care, prospective parents are encouraged to place their details on our waitlist as soon as possible.

The Service achieves high quality ratings when undertaking external assessment. Across the whole service we work on child staff:ratios above those required under Regulation. The Centre also has higher staff ratios with higher levels of qualification than required under regulation. These factors along with our beautiful physical surrounds increase the demand.

There is an established list of families interested in obtaining a position at the Centre with major intakes being at the start of each academic year. However, requiring a start at the beginning of each year still does not guarantee you a position - it is all about availability. There are many variables that impact that availability.

Access will depend on your child’s age, the days required, and what is vacant.

Mid-year intake will be reliant on families leaving our service or reducing the hours they require. Availability of a mid-year start is difficult for us to determine.
