Nursery school places

NurseryEnrolling your child at nursery

To enrol your child into a pre-school nursery contact the nursery directly and ask for an application form.

It's a good idea to visit the nursery, have look around and chat to staff.

Priority is given to children living in the area for a nursery place.


Entitled children, whose parents wish it, are placed either in a council nursery or partnership nursery/playgroup. Please refer to the Admissions Guidance for Nurseries for information relating to entitled children. 

We cannot guarantee a place of first choice therefore applications are allocated using a points system which takes account of both children's needs and family circumstances. Parents must note on their application a 2nd and 3rd choice of establishment.  

More information is available in our Admissions Guidance for Nurseries and our Parent's Guide to Early Learning and Childcare Admissions and Charges Policy.
