Nursery Admissions

For Nursery Admissions for the academic year from September 2018 there will no longer be an online system of applying for your child’s preferred Nursery place co-ordinated by Herts County Council.

Instead parents/carers will need to apply directly to the school/s of their choice.

Nascot Wood Infant and Nursery School has a nursery admissions number of 60. We offer 14 morning nursery places from 8.45-11.45am and 14 afternoon places from 12.30-3.30pm.  We also offer sixteen 30-hour free childcare places from 8.45am-2.45pm Monday to Friday, for eligible children, with the option of extending the session to 3.30pm, at an additional charge.

In addition, we work in partnership with ‘Jack in the Box’, a private nursery on the school site, to deliver the 30 Hour free childcare offer. Parents should indicate on the application form if they are interested in sharing the 30 Hour free childcare offer with Jack in the Box. A separate application will also need to be made directly to Jack in the Box. (Contact details can be found at )

School Visits

Our Headteacher, Pam Scragg, takes small groups of parents on tours of the whole school from the time when admissions open for Reception right through until admissions close for Nursery applications.  These are very popular and numbers are restricted so that the disruption to the children is kept to a minimum. If you wish to book onto one of these tours please contact the school on the number below. Please be aware that these tours are very popular coming up to admissions deadlines so book early!
