We will be contacting all parents by end of January 2019 asking for deposits and confirmation of places

Babies born in 2019

We have limited places available in our newborn room and currently have between 3 and 4 places remaining per day available (depending on day of week)

Children born 2018 or earlier

We have received applications over and above the number of places available for children born in 2018 or earlier, however,  we do not expect that all will book a place

We are more than happy to accept a short-application / reserve form (download above) for children born in 2018 or earlier and we  will contact all reserve applicants of children in these age groups as places become available in date order of application receipt over the coming weeks

You are welcome to register your interest by returning the above Reserve Form to marc@tracylewischildcare.co.uk 

By registering your interest, you will put on a reserve list and will be contacted, if/when spaces become available in order of date contacted
