*The Preschool operates a wait list system for full classes. A child may be entered onto the wait list for one or more full classes. Should space become available, children will be offered the places in the order which they registered in the wait list. The wait list is available to children currently registered with another Preschool class as well as those not registered for a class. The wait list operates over the course of the entire school year, meaning children may be offered places in classes at any point during that time. Should a place become available and be offered to a child, the full registration process and fees will need to be completed (if the child is not already in a class) to secure the place. If that process is not completed in a timely manner as agreed with the registrar the place will be offered to the next child on the list. For further information regarding wait lists please contact the registrars
