Nursery Admissions

Children are able to join King’s St Alban’s Nursery as soon as they turn two, nursery admission in Worcestershire takes place through-out the year. Families are encouraged to visit the nursery at any time and a member of our admissions team would be very happy to arrange an appointment. Regular Open Days take place across the year and provide prospective parents an opportunity to learn all about our wonderful nursery setting.

Joining Nursery

Starting at nursery can be an exciting but daunting experience for some children, our nursery staff are extremely experienced and as such are well equipped to work with children and their families to ensure that when the time comes to start nursery the settling in process is as smooth as possible. Before children join us at nursery, we will arrange for a member of our nursery team to meet you and your child either in your home or at our nursery setting. This enables you to familiarise yourself with a member of our Nursery team and ask any question that you might have. It also gives our staff the chance to get to know your child and their needs.
