For the academic year 2023/24 local nurseries will once again be fully responsible for the administration of their own admissions, rather than Hertfordshire County Council. The timeline for applications is as follows:

Friday 27th January 2023:  Deadline for Applications for September 2023 nursery places

Friday 10th February 2023: Nursery places for September 2023 offered and ‘early’ start in April 2023 nursery places offered (if places allow)

Wednesday 22nd March 2023:  Parents must accept or decline their offered place by this date.

All relevant information on our nursery and our oversubscription criteria are available in the documents below:

Skyswood Primary & Nursery School Oversubscription Criteria

Skyswood Nursery Provision

Children born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020 can be admitted to Skyswood Nursery from September 2023.  If places allow, we offer those children who are 3 years old by 31st December 2022 a start date during the first week of the spring term and those who are 3 years old by 31st March 2023 a start date during the first week of the summer term.  These children will then spend 5 / 4 terms respectively in nursery.  Children who are unsuccessful in securing an ‘early’ start in the spring or summer term will still be considered for a place starting in September 2023.

Children will continue to be eligible to receive 15 hours of nursery education in the form of 5 nursery sessions of 3 hours each per week.  In response to local demand, we offer 5 morning sessions 9 am – 12 noon with the option of staying for a lunch club, 12 noon – 1 pm, at a cost of £4.00 per day (price subject to change).
