Admissions and Inductions

manor park kids playingAdmission to Manor Park Nursery depends on place availability. We operate a chronological waiting list system when we are over subscribed and for children under the age of 2 years.

We welcome all new and prospective parents to an informal meeting within the nursery environment where a member of the management team will conduct a tour of the nursery and explain our policies and procedures.

When admission is confirmed a member of staff will be appointed as your child's Key worker. The Key Worker is responsible for ensuring effective communication between home and nursery is maintained. All parents/Carers are required to complete a registration form, nursery contract and consent forms before the child begins.

Manor Park Nursery is a partnership nursery therefore children aged 3-5 years will be entitled to Government Funding.



We aim to make the transition from home to nursery as smooth as possible. This requires effective communication between parent and keyworker.

We offer all new parents the opportunity to receive a home visit from a member of the management team.

All parent/Carers should complete an "All About Me" booklet stating the child's likes and dislikes, daily routines and general information about their family.

The nursery will work in partnership with parents/carers to settle all children into the nursery.

Induction visits will depend on the needs of the child but normally comprise of 3 visits of up to one hour each. Parents may stay in the nursery during such visits if required.

Children will only ever be taken on an educational outing during nursery session when they are completely settled and parents relaxed.


Government Voucher Scheme:

Childcare Voucher scheme is a simple and cost-effective way for employers and employees to save money on childcare costs.


In April 2005, the Government introduced Childcare Vouchers, to help parents benefit from these savings, earning them extra disposable income, with new limits being introduced in April 2006


A Childcare Voucher scheme can only be used as part of an employee benefit provided by an employer. Employees elect to take up to a maximum of £55 per week (£243 per month) of their salary as Childcare Vouchers. The amount chosen does not attract Tax or National Insurance contributions.


Savings to be made…

• Savings of up to £962 per year for a 22% tax payer

• Savings of up to £1,196 per year for a 40% tax payer

• Both parents can take advantage of the scheme, therefore doubling their saving

• Employers also save on their National Insurance Contributions, saving up to £373 per year / per employee.


In families where both parents are taxpayers there are potential savings of between £1,196 to £2,392 per annum , and parents have the flexibility to split childcare costs between them to make the most of their Tax and National Insurance savings. The Childcare Voucher scheme will significantly benefit most families in the UK with vouchers quickly becoming the preferred method for parents to pay for their childcare, and more Employers offering this scheme to their Employees as part of their benefits package. The amount of income tax and National Insurance contributions each parent will save under the scheme depends on their current salary, and more information can be found at


Working Tax Credit if you are responsible for a child:

If you are responsible for a child or young person, you can get Working Tax Credit provided you work at least 16 hours a week if you're single, or at least 24 hours between you if you're in a couple, with one of you working at least 16 hours a week. Some couples with children may qualify without working for 24 hours between them, provided one of them works 16 hours – see above). Your income also needs to be low enough. A child is someone under 16, and a young person is someone who is 16, 17, 18 or 19 and still in full-time education up to A level or equivalent, or on certain approved training courses. You are responsible for a child or young person if they normally live with you or you have main responsibility for their care. You cannot usually get Working Tax Credit if your child is in local authority care.


You may be able to get Working Tax Credit for a short period after your child is 16 or leaves school, depending on when their birthday is and what they do on leaving school.


If you are on maternity leave, paternity leave or adoption leave and you normally work 16 hours or more, you can claim Working Tax Credit before you go back to work, as long as you are responsible for a child. If it is your first baby and you are not responsible for any other children, you will have to wait until the child is born, or comes to live with you before you can claim. There is an online questionnaire you can use to find out if you might qualify for WTC. Go to HM Revenue and Custom's website at:
