Nursery Enrolment

To ensure your child's place during session 2015/16, you must submit a completed Nursery Enrolment Application form by Friday, 13th March 2015.

You can also request to defer admission to primary school if you feel your child is still too young.

If your child attended a local authority nursery during 2014/2015 and you want them to remain at the same nursery, you only need to complete a returners form. These are available from your child's nursery and must also be returned by 13th March 2015.

Guidance notes

Please refer to our guidance notes which explain the procedures in detail. If you have any questions, please contact us using the details below.

What we offer

All children can be offered an entitlement to 600 hours in a local authority nursery. Note that this may not always be in your first choice.

The Government system of grant funding means children become eligible for a free place from the term after their 3rd birthday.

This entitles all eligible children to an early learning and childcare place of up to 5 sessions of 3 hours and 10 minutes per week for 38 weeks in a local authority nursery or partnership provider.

Where there are spaces in a local authority nursery children may be offered a place earlier than the term after their third birthday.
