Nursery Enrolment, Session Choice Forms and Guidance Notes for session 2016/17 are now available.

Note that forms can be filled in online, saved and printed out using browsers such as Google Chrome.

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 hrs and 10 minutes per week for 38 weeks in a local authority nursery or partnership provider.

From August 2016, all nurseries will provide flexibility around how these hours are offered. This means your child's place can be 5 morning sessions, 5 afternoon sessions or 5 sessions over the week.
