Admissions and Policies

Admissions & Policies

We are an all inclusive setting taking children aged 2.5 years old to 4 years old for both morning and/or afternoon sessions during term time.

If you are considering sending your child to The Willow On The Farm we would be delighted to hear from you. Please email to arrange a time or to ask any questions.


There is a £30 non-refundable Registration Fee. This puts the child on a waiting list but does not guarantee a place. Approximately three terms notice will be given when a vacancy arises.

On confirmation of a place, a deposit of £500 is payable which will be taken off the final terms fees. One terms notice of withdrawal of your child must given in writing otherwise one terms fees will be charged.

The fees are payable one term in advance.

Our hours are:

Hours 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday. These are split into morning and afternoon sessions, at 3 hours each, with an option for an early morning drop off at 8.30am.
