⦁ Registration is all year round for infant and toddler classes and subject to availability of space
⦁ We admit children from diverse backgrounds.
⦁ Registration is deemed completed and enrolment possible only on confirmation of all registration requirements and payments.
⦁ As it is not possible for Olives’ Nest to meet the needs of all pupils, it is the responsibility of the parents to fully disclose all documentation prior to an offer of admission being made. Failure of any applicant to disclose fully in any instance may result in the offer of acceptance being rescinded.
⦁ Any child requiring special consideration, particularly children with special needs, must have completed records forwarded to Admissions before decision and recommendations can be made.
⦁ As a result of the amount of time lost and work that needs to be made up, as well as the unreasonable burden late admissions place on teachers, students and classes; admissions into Nursery 1 and above may not be granted after 30 school days but upon exceptional circumstances, regardless of space availability. Children transferred from another school system and who have been in attendance in the current school year prior to transferring will be admitted.
⦁ Regardless of when pupils are admitted to the school, it is the responsibility of every child to make up and complete all work missed due to the late admission as required by the administration.
