Admissions Policy

We wish to welcome children and their families from the local community, regardless of cultural, ethnic, religious or social background, gender or any special physical or educational need into our pre-school setting. 


To fulfill this aim Explorers will endeavor to:


  1. Advertise the existence of Explorers widely throughout the community

  2. Make our Equal Opportunities Policy available to all parties.

  3. Admit children between the ages of 2½ and 5 years, initially on a first come first served basis until capacity is reached.

  4. In the event of over subscription, hold a waiting list ordered according to date of birth, (oldest child being given priority). Children already attending having priority to increase their number of sessions.

  5. Other factors being equal, children with a stated intention to attend St Nicholas C of E Primary School, Henstridge will be given priority over others.

  6. Be flexible regarding attendance patterns in order to accommodate the needs of individual children and families.

  7. Explorers will endeavor to give parents/carers/guardians at least 4 weeks notice of when a place becomes available for their child.
