NurseryHow do I apply for a place in nursery?

Council nurseries

You can get an application form directly from the nursery you would like your child to attend. Get in touch directly with the nursery and they will give you help and advice with the application process. Council run nurseries use an admissions criteria to decide how to allocate pages. The nursery will give you more information on this.

Private and voluntary sector nurseries, community nurseries and playgroups
