The majority of children start Skyswood Nursery in the September following their third birthday and spend a total of three terms in the nursery class before transitioning to a Reception class, the following September. 

However, if places allow, we can offer children an earlier start as follows: 

Children who have their third birthday between 1st September and 31st December can start in the January (spring term) and spend a total of five terms in nursery.

Children who have their third birthday between 1st January and 31st March can start in the April (summer term) and spend a total of four terms 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 the following September.

The timeline for applications for the academic year 2025/26 is as follows:

Friday 24th January 2025:  Deadline for Applications for September 2025 nursery places

Friday 7th February 2025: Nursery places for September 2025 offered 

Wednesday 19th March 2025:  Parents must accept or decline their offered place by this date.

If you wish your child to be considered for an ‘early start’ to nursery, please contact the school office on 01727 854164 or by email to admin@skyswood.aat.school.
