This information is intended for all parents/carers who are considering Wayfield Early Years Unit for their children or would like further information about the Unit.  It will give you a brief outline of how the Early Years Unit operates.  Copies of all the Centre’s policies, procedures and forms may be found in the main school reception or within each room.  If you would like to see them please ask a member of the Early Years Team.

Blossoms 2 year old funded room is registered by Ofsted (The Office of Standards for Education).

All nursery applications need to be returned to the Reception at Wayfield Children’s Centre or Blossoms. Please note a returned application cannot guarantee a place – progression through from Blossoms to Seedlings and Seedlings to reception will all need seperate applications. A place is not guarenteed, Medway Council School admissions procedure needs to be followed.
