Admissions Policy

Children can attend Yorkies from the age of 3 years (term time), during holiday club we take children from 3 to 7 years. If your child is offered a place at York Road Nursery from the term after their third birthday, then your child can join Yorkies as well, space permitting.

Waiting List

Children can join the waiting list for Yorkies Daycare up to a year in advance. Parents should complete the Application Form, stating their preferred sessions. Registration does not guarantee you a place although we try to accommodate as many children as possible. If you no longer need a place at Yorkies we would be grateful if you would let us know so we can remove you from the waiting list. The waiting list registration form is on our website.
