By that stage I was told he could have a place at two of them but only waiting list for the other and for the nurseries I was told "all the June babies have been registered you'll have to go on the waiting list...". No joke. And of course they all cost you money, waiting list or not. Ridiculous. We are moving to Scotland now so all a big waste of money...
I feel your pain. Wish I hadn't got caught up in the private school frenzy.
But I wasn't too convinced we'd move, so had to do something to avoid the dreadful state ones local to us at the time
Not a pleasant experience for my first taste of school life, but you live and learn I guess. *sigh*
