Admissions Nursery Early registration at RIMU is strongly recommended. We advise that you contact the nursery to arrange a visit. If you want to put your child on the waiting list, you need to fill in an admissions/registration form and a fee of £50 is payable. Following registration, you will be contacted when a place becomes available. It is always worth calling the nursery if you want an immediate place as some do become available occasionally. If you accept the place offered you will then need to pay a non-refundable deposit of £250. This is returned when you leave RIMU. An admissions form can be downloaded here. Nursery places will be offered on a first come, first serve basis.  No interview or assessment is required for a place in the nursery. Nusery - Settling in Once you have secured your place with a deposit, your child will then be invited to RIMU to spend a morning at the nursery. We encourage parents not to stay as this helps with the settling in process. Some children settle very quickly, while others can take quite a bit longer. However, the settling in period for all children is a morning session. The manager communicates with parents frequently by phone and email to help reassure any parents who may be anxious about leaving their child. There is very good communication between the nursery and the parents School Children will be offered a place on a first come first served basis, once a parent has registered their interest and the child has subsequently been informally assessed by the school at the workshops. This informal assessment will take place in January for the Preparatory school. The assessment will cover basic literacy and numeracy as well as a music lesson. All assessments are undertaken as a group and NO previous music experience is necessary to attend RIMU. Once the Head Teacher has confirmed her acceptance of your registration in writing for the preparatory school, you will be asked to confirm your acceptance of a place within 3 weeks and at this stage a confirmation fee of £500 is due.   In the event of you being offered a waiting list place, the school will ask you to confirm your desire to accept a place for your child, should one become available. If we are unable to offer the place, we will return both the registration and confirmation fees to you. For further details, or to arrange a visit, please contact Mrs Nathalie Richardson by email or telephone 07710 288 227. Means tested bursaries may be available from Year 3. Music Scholarships may be available from Year 3 upwards. © RIMU 2011-2017 Made with Xara   RIMU Music Preparatory School & Nursery
