Families/Guardians will be required to read through the Family Handbook and if the policies of the Centre are agreed to they will proceed with enrolling their child. If no places are available they will be placed on a waiting list.
Places are offered to families currently using the service for the following year and acceptances are sent out mid year. We then work through our waiting list (taking note of the priority of access) and places are offered based on availability.
