How do I apply for transport to council standalone nursery?
Contact your child’s head of nursery if you feel your circumstances qualify your child for nursery transport.
Once a request for nursery transport has been approved by the Service Manager, Early Years and Early Intervention, transport is arranged by the Transport Co-ordinator who will liaise with an approved taxi firm and have arrangements put in place.
