Enrolment forms for session 2018/19 are only available from local nurseries or by emailing

What we offer

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

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.

All nurseries 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.

You are also now able to buy additional nursery sessions in specific local nurseries where spaces are available.

Please note that places in a nursery are not allocated according to school catchment areas.

Application procedure

You are asked on the form to indicate your 1st and 2nd choice.

Closing dates for applications are dependent on your child's date of birth, however you can apply at any point. Forms must be returned to your 1st choice nursery.

If applying to split placement please give a copy of the application form to each nursery.
