Admissions, fees & funding

Child numbers are regulated so that the maximum permitted is not exceeded.


School House Nursery has waiting lists for both September and year round admissions.  The lists are managed by the Nursery Manager.

The aim is to promote fairness, understanding and transparency of the Nursery admissions process in line with the Nursery's equal opportunities policy. All individual applications are considered and any reasonable steps would be taken as required by the Special Educational Needs and Disability Discrimination Act 2001 to allow access to the Nursery for all children, parents/carers and staff.
