Admissions Procedure

We regularly accept children to existing and new nursery groups provided there are places available in the applicable age group. Besides enrollment at the beginning of the day care year in August, it is also possible to join the nursery during the year.


1. Online Registration

As a first step, parents need to register their child by filling in the online application form. Having received the application, we will first send out a confirmation email and then our admission team will call the parents to discuss the next steps in the admission process.

2. Parent Interview

Depending on availability of free spots, we invite the parents to an interview with our head of nursery.

The selection of families is based on the following criteria:

  1. Siblings or a switch from another Phorms nursery
  2. Bilingual children
  3. Social and cultural diversity as well as a balanced proportion of girls and boys
  4. Time of registration at Phorms

Parents will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and to learn more about educational and organisational specifics of our nursery. They can also tour the nursery if they have not yet seen our facilities.

3. Place Offer

After the parent interview, we offer selected children a place at our nursery depending on the availability of places and the criteria mentioned above. The place offers are sent out via email.

4. Nursery Contract

If the parents have accepted the spot offer, we will send out the nursery contract by post.
