How to Apply

We would love to welcome you and your child at Seedlings. Follow the steps below to make their start with us as easy as possible.

1. Plan a Visit

We recommend that you schedule a visit to see what our preschool has to offer for your child. If you like what you experience, we can supply you with an application form and welcome pack, giving you some more in-depth information about how we run.

2. Complete Application Forms

As part of the application, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire about your child’s interests and abilities to help us get to know them better, and ask that you pay a £15 registration fee.

3. Attend Settling in Sessions

Once your application forms have been completed, your child will receive a Seedlings polo shirt and book bag. Your child will also be invited to attend free settling in sessions to help them familiarise themselves with the setting.

Invoices & Payments

Invoices are issued via the Blossom App on a monthly basis – you will be notified via email and via the App when your next invoice is ready.

Payment should be made by BACS.

Additional sessions booked during the month will be added to the following month’s invoice.

If you need to discuss your invoice at any time please ask to speak with Becky, our manager.  

Unfortunately missed sessions are non-transferable as our staff ratios are calculated on booked sessions.
