To Register

If you are interested in a place for your child, please call the setting to make sure there is a space for your child. One of the managers will then send you a registration form, fees and answer any questions that you may have.

At the moment we are only doing show arounds after the setting has closed, this is to keep the children that we care for as safe as possible while still allowing you the chance to see the setting in person. We understand that you may wish to see how our staff interact with the children so please speak to a member of the management team to see if they are able to help you.


If you would prefer to send us an email about registering, please email office@wakoos.co.uk and state which setting (Billingshurst or Petworth) you are interested in.
