School nursery classes
What can a school nursery offer?
- For children from 3 years + (some schools may be able to offer places to children who are 2 years)
- Registered with Ofsted under their school's registration
- Typically open for a 3 hour session in morning and 3 hour session in afternoon. Some offer clubs at lunch time and/or children can attend the morning and afternoon sessions
- Can offer funded early education places, Tax Free Childcare and childcare costs through tax credits/universal credit
Please note that admission to a maintained school's nursery class does not influence a child's admission to the school. You must make a separate application for primary school. Whether a child attended the school nursery or not is not taken into consideration.
