A very warm welcome to our Nursery page.
A copy of the Nursery Prospectus and application form is available here:
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:
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).
