Nursery Admissions

Parents/carers need to apply directly to the setting of their choice in order to secure a nursery place for their child.

Nascot Wood Infant and Nursery School currently offers:

  • 14 morning nursery places from 8.45-11.45am
  • 14 afternoon places from 12.30-3.30pm.
  • sixteen 30-hour free childcare places from 8.45am-2.45pm Monday to Friday, for eligible children. There is also the option of extending the session every day to 3.30pm, at an additional charge.

In addition, we work in partnership with ‘Jack in the Box’, a private nursery situated 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 www.jackinthebox.org.uk)

If your child was born between 01/09/2015 – 31/08/2016 you can apply for a place in our Nursery for the academic year 2019-2020 by completing our online application form.

For children who have been adopted from care or are subject to a special guardianship order or a child arrangements order, eligibility will be based on your declaration that your child was formally a looked after child along with the evidence of their status e.g. a copy of the relevant order. This form and a copy of the relevant order should be seen by the school. The school will then contact Hertfordshire County Council in order to confirm the child’s status and enable a place to be offered under this criterion.
