Admissions

Edmund Waller offers part time and full time nursery places. Full time places are offered to children who are entitled to the 30 hours of free childcare. If you wish your child to be admitted to Edmund Waller Nursery, you need to collect and complete an application form available from the school office. We do not accept applications until your child turns 2 years of age. We do, though, recommend that you apply as soon after the date as possible.

Children are admitted to the Nursery the term after they have turned 3 years of age.

Our main intake is in September. The School manages its own admissions for the nursery class. Our criteria for admission are Looked After Children (LAC) first, then siblings to be offered a place and then home to school distance.

The morning session runs from 9.00am to 11.45am and the afternoon session runs from 12.45 to 3.30pm, with an additional session once a week to make up the total 15 hours. If parents wish their child to stay for lunch they will need to pay a nominal amount and provide a healthy packed lunch.

Children who are not offered a place will automatically be put on a waiting list. Should a place become available we will contact you.
