Nursery Admissions

Entitlement to Nursery Education

Children are entitled to 15 hours free Nursery education from the term that starts after their third birthday. For some children this means that they could spend five terms in Nursery until they start Reception and for others it is a maximum of three.

There is one main intake for the Nursery each year, which is in September in the Autumn term. Most children will start our Nursery at the beginning of the September following their third birthday. It may, however, be possible for children to gain a place starting mid-way through the academic year, subject to the availability.

Your child may qualify for 30 hour funding if you meet certain criteria. Details of eligibility for 30-hours funding provision can be found at: 

Please check on the Government website to see if this applies to you before you make the Nursery application.
