When should I apply for a Nursery place?
You can apply for a Nursery place at Bushfield Road Nursery whenever you want to. Most people register their interest when their child is between two and three years old. You will be invited to a meeting in the March before your child starts in the nursery in September.
If my child gets a place how old will they be when they start Nursery?
At Bushfield Nursery, children will usually start in the September of the academic year in which they become 4 years old. This means that some children will be almost 4 years old whilst others who have birthdays in July/August will be just 3 years old.
