Anna Terrington

Meet Anna

Anna Terrington is our Operations Manager and is responsible for the intake of children to our four nursery schools.

Anna has been with Once upon a time since we opened in 2007. She is a qualified childcare practitioner and spent several years as the Baby Room Manager at our Wroxham Road nursery school. Since having three children of her own, Anna now manages the joining process. She will respond to all Registration Forms, advise on availability of places and answer any questions you may have. Whether it’s an email or a telephone call, Anna is the first person you’ll hear from. And if we’re able to offer a place, Anna will also arrange a visit so you can get a feel for the nursery and make sure this is the right choice for you and your child.

Please note that Anna works Wednesday and Thursday (9am-6pm) plus Friday (9am-1pm).

All of our nursery schools are currently full until September 2023.

If you would like to add your child to our waiting list for a place at any of our four nursery schools, from September 2023, please complete and submit the Registration Form below. Forms are prioritised in date received order, and we give priority to siblings.

Places for September 2023 will be offered from January 2023 onwards. You will be contacted at this time if we are in a position to offer a place. If we are able to offer your child a place, you will be invited to visit the nursery.

In the event of places becoming available before September 2023, we will contact parents on the waiting list in chronological order.

Thank you for your interest. 

Registration Form

Please complete and submit the Registration Form below, and we’ll be in touch soon.

Registration Form
  1. Day care is 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, 51 weeks of the year for children from three month’s old to pre-school age.

    Sessional care is 8.45am to 11.45am and 12.15pm to 3.15pm, Monday to Friday, during school term times only for children aged three and four years old.

  1. Submission of this completed form does not guarantee that a place will be available for your child.

    Anna will be in contact with you as soon as possible to discuss your requirements, such as nursery location and which days are required.

    Nursery visits will be arranged once a place has been offered. Unfortunately, too many visits cause disruption to the daily nursery routine.

    If a place is offered and accepted, a Registration Fee of £200 will be required. £100 of this will be deducted from your first full month’s invoice, and £100 will be deducted from your final invoice if one month’s written notice is given.
